    PE and Sport Premium Funding Report 2016/17


    The government will continue to provide sports funding to schools during the next academic year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has now been confirmed to continue until 2020 and the amount received by schools will double from September 2017. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to ALL 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 high quality lessons and improved learning for all.



    Burton Joyce Primary School’s allocation for the financial year 2016/17 was £9538.

    The funding has been used primarily to employ a sports apprentice to work in school full time to support PE across the school. His role has been to support children in curriculum PE and to allow us to increase the percentage of children that access extra-curricular activities.


    Here is a funding review of our key development areas targeted through the PE funding in 2016/17.

    Previous funding review

    YEAR 2016-2017

    Pupil benefit

    School benefit

    Key Strand:

    The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity –kick-starting healthy and active lifestyles.



    To increase the children’s fitness levels by providing the children with more opportunities to meet the government target of 60 minutes of physical activity a day.


    Amount spent: £700

    As a result of the Golden Mile baseline we implemented more physical activity opportunities and opportunities for children to engage in moderate to vigorous activities such as the morning golden mile sessions, golden mile sessions as a warm up before PE lessons. Fitness opportunities were also built into other areas of the days through simple circuits and using physical activities to meet other curriculum subjects. Young leaders ran activities at lunchtime to engage children further. Children are demonstrating a better understanding of why we need to engage in physical activity and fitness levels are beginning to increase.


    The baseline gave the school invaluable data on the fitness levels of the children. It helped us shape our curriculum map to provide more moderate to vigorous opportunities. We were able to engage parents in the morning golden mile sessions. We were able to use physical activity to develop a fun curriculum where PE activities were used to teach other curriculum objects.

    Next steps: To build the Golden Mile into lunchtime activities and as part of an active classroom initiative.

    Key Strand: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity –kick-starting healthy and active lifestyles.


    Objective: To ensure all children have access to and are engaged in physical activity daily.

    To ensure children are motivated and making good progress.


    Amount spent: £5500

    By having the apprentice we were able to offer an increased number of extra-curricular clubs providing children with the opportunities to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. This led to an increase in the number of children taking part, with 65% of KS2 children being engaged. 18% of these children were non-active pupils.


    Using the assessment app we were able to identify children that needed support in PE and the sports apprentice ran targeted intervention groups across KS1 & KS2. The pupils have been able to work in smaller groups during PE which has allowed focused teaching, which has improved confidence and progress of pupils.


    An increased opportunity for children to take part in competitive activities through the sports apprentice managing and implementing intra- school competitions so that 100% of KS2 children took part & 100% of year 2 children. We provided intra-school in 8 different sports.

    Employment of a sports apprentice to work across the school to support the development of curriculum and extra-curricular PE.

    The school has competed in various sports over the year with 18 teams coached and entered into competition.

    Next steps: Maintain intra-school programme – celebrate the winning house in weekly achievement assemblies to raise the profile of PE and school sport.




    Key Strand: Subject Leadership


    Objective: To upskill the PE coordinator to continue to improve the PE curriculum within the school and achieve the School Games Gold Kitemark Award.

    Objective: To replace and improve the range of PE equipment. 


    Amount spent: £1200

    Children introduced to new sports such as boccia, ultimate Frisbee, dodgeball and handball. Children were given the opportunity to engage in these new activities in curriculum and extra-curricular time.


    They children were also able to able these new skills into a competitive environment through intra-school competitions.



    Audit of the schools PE provision and equipment and identified areas of need to ensure that high quality lessons could be delivered.

    We entered inter-school competitions for the first time in dobgeballl and boccia, with the boccia team finishing 4th.

    Next Steps: Continue to offer handball, boccia, ultimate Frisbee, in curriculum and extra-curricular time. Try to enter a handball tournament.

    Key Strand: the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.


    Objective: To use the sport of Table Tennis to improve behaviour at break times and lunchtimes.


    Amount spent: £1198.03

    Children were really excited at having the table tennis tables and maximised the use of them at lunchtimes and breaktimes. Having the tables allowed more children to be engaged in an organised activity along with our trim trail and young leader activities which in turn meant there was less incidences. A rota was created and adhered to by all children.

    Our less active children were identified and invited to play table tennis on a Friday supported by our sports apprentice. They really enjoyed this opportunity and grew in confidence.

    More children meeting their daily 30 minutes physical activity target.

    Improved behaviour at lunchtimes and less time being wasted by teachers dealing with issues.

    Next Steps: Increase the number of children taking part in table tennis after school club to maximise use of tables.


    A new PE Funding development plan will be put in place for 2017/18 to ensure that as a school we keep improving our P.E, school sport and physical activity provision.
