"Children are happy and safe so they can learn."
Year 2 Parent
At Alwyn we pride ourselves on promoting a range of activities through the taught curriculum and extra-curricular activities which promote an active lifestyle. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
What is the PE and Sports Premium?
The PE and Sports Premium is funding provided to schools by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport and is in addition to main school funding. It is ring fenced and as such can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The government first provided this funding for the academic year 2013 – 2014 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Each school receives £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil calculated by reference to the number of pupils in school as recorded in the annual schools census in January.
It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding. Ofsted now report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend this additional funding. For details of key objectives and proposed spending to support these objectives this year please see document below.
