Our School Vision
At Morpeth All Saints Church of England Aided First School we recognise the importance of using physical education and sport to develop the holistic child. We believe sport is an integral part of the whole school curriculum and we provide an inclusive learning environment. This enables pupils to access a broad and balanced curriculum, covering fundamental skills and knowledge but also healthy lifestyles, physical literacy and encouraging them to develop a life long approach to participation in sport and physical education.
At Morpeth All Saints we are Fit for the Challenge!
Overview of PE and Sports Funding
The Government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years from 2013 to 2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Sport Premium has been extended into 2017/2018, having originally only been guaranteed for two years since 2013. The funding, which has been available since the start of the current academic year, is allocated directly to primary schools, providing them with dedicated resource to increase PE and school sport provision in their schools.
How will we sustain progress in PE should the Sports Funding stop?
At Morpeth All Saints we have been working very hard to monitor and measure the impact that PE and sport has and continues to do so in our school. We are very proud to have achieved and sustained the Gold Award from 2015/2016 to 2016/2017 as part of the Sainsbury's School Games Mark. We were also awarded the Silver Quality Mark from the Youth Sport Trust too. If you would like to find out more, please check out the links below:
Our school is situated in attractive and extensive well maintained grounds in a small housing estate, Lancaster Park, which is north of the town of Morpeth. The school first opened in 1972 and was formerly known as Wansbeck St Aidan Church of England Aided First School until it was renamed in 2001.Read More of the school welcome page
