    Following the Olympic Games in 2012 the government announced that it would provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E and school sport. To find out more about this funding please follow this link



    Here at Burton Joyce Primary School we recognise the vital contribution of physical education to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development. We believe that through the variety of opportunities we offer in PE, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play, teamwork and an understanding of the ways in which sport can transcend social and cultural boundaries. Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to all of our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.



    Burton Joyce Primary School’s allocation for the financial year 2015/16 was £9710.



    Here is a breakdown of our key development areas targeted through the PE funding:


    Key Strand: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE and School Sport.


    Objective: To apply physical literacy skills into a range of physical contexts to ensure children have access to engaging and challenging lessons. £6000

    • With the support of the Gedling Sports Partnership Director of Education we now have a new PE curriculum map that is more skill based rather than sport specific.  All staff are working from the new curriculum map and select an activity area or a range of activity areas to meet their objectives.

    • We pay to be part of the Gedling Sports Partnership teacher package which provides us with a curriculum support teacher to provide CPD for staff.

    • The curriculum teacher has worked alongside 12 members of staff throughout the year giving them high quality CPD. The staff now have a deeper understanding of how the physical literacy skills from the Real PE Physical Literacy scheme can be applied to activity areas.

    • With the curriculum support teachers support we were able to introduce yoga into our curriculum. Year 2 teachers continued to use this throughout the year to help the children’s wellbeing by using yoga to give the children brain breaks.

    • This continued development has provided the pupils with access to high quality PE lessons that are engaging and challenging.

    • The curriculum support teacher also helped us to introduce an intra school structure as part of our curriculum sessions so that 100% of children took part in a Level 1 competition.


    Objective: To upskill the PE coordinator to improve all aspects of PE across the school. £1600

    • PE coordinator attended Level 5 Primary School PE specialism course - 6 training days

    • The course allowed the PE coordinator to reflect on all aspects of the PE curriculum and identify strengths and areas for improvement.

    • The training helped the PE coordinator reflect on and improve the quality of her lessons and advise the curriculum support teacher on how to support the staff to do this also.

    • The PE coordinator was observed by the Head of School and the CEO of Gedling Sports Partnership to complete the course.

    • The PE coordinator attend the Gedling Subject Leaders Network and the Nottinghamshire PE and School Sport Conference.

    • As a result the PE coordinator was able to guide the school to achieve the School Games Gold Kitemark.

    • In discussion with the assessment lead in school a format for the PE assessment was decided to bring PE in line with other subjects.

    • With the support of the Director of Education for Gedling Sports Partnership assessment statements were written for each year group.

    • Assessment statements reflect a whole child approach so that teachers can focus not just on the physical but also the emotional, social and cognitive aspects of a child’s development.
