PE and Sport Premium Funding

2130A2F2D109D95998C104A2DBBDDBE7We are proud of our PE curriculum at Stanburn Primary School. We aim to create a learning environment where every child is physically confident and able to find something that they are good at and enjoy. The Government is providing funding to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over a number of academic years. This academic year the government has allocated £22,960 for PESP. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport. These see money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Previous funding has been allocated towards developing our outdoor area as a school, and developing the sports provision that we provide at our school. Each year, the grant will be going towards promoting physical activity through these projects as well as others. 

These plans include:

The impact of this funding will be measured through:

 The Impact of Primary PE and Sport Premium at Stanburn Primary School

Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

This year we are delighted to be able to use the PE sport premium to support the development of PE and school sport. As intended, we have used this funding to improve the provision of school sport at Stanburn Primary School, encourage participation in a range of sports, increase competition and promote a healthy lifestyle. We believe in a whole school approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and we encourage all children to develop their understanding of the way in which they can use equipment and apparatus safely yet imaginatively to achieve their personal goals. All children have the opportunity to enjoy being physically active, maintain a healthy lifestyle and using the medium of sport, increase their self-esteem and become deep, flexible, creative thinkers and the PESP funding has been used to develop this

Spending of the PESP has been carefully considered and we have used this funding to improve School Sport in 5 key areas. These are:

1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
5. increased participation in competitive sport

Stanburn Primary School received £22,920 of funding during the academic year 2019 – 2020. Below is a breakdown of how funding was spent this year and its impact.

- 100% of school staff said that after the training they felt more confident teaching gymnastics to their children.
- As a result of this coaching, we were also able to enter children across Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 in the annual Harrow School Gymnastics competition.

Extra-Curricular Club offers


- Children across the school (including those identified as being less active) were given opportunities to participate in a broader range of sports.
- By employing professional, skilled coaches to run clubs, children became actively engaged in sessions, kick-starting a love for different sports and developing a healthy, active lifestyle.
- As a result of offering these extra-curricular sessions, we saw a rise in the number of intra-school competitions we could enter this year due to the new skills developed by our pupils, thus improving participation in competitive sport.

Subscription to the PE Hub Planning Tool:
- The profile of PE at Stanburn has been increased as staff have a comprehensive online planning tool to help them to teach the PE across the curriculum.
- Staff CPD sessions using this tool have been well received and pupils have commented on how much they enjoy their PE lessons as a result.
During a Year 5 and 6 pupil voice survey, 90% of children said that they ‘really enjoy’ their PE lessons. Pupils surveyed said: “We do get to try a wide range of sports and activities; I g a chance to learn new skills and my teaching knows how to make PE fun.”

PE Equipment:
- Equipment was purchased to broaden children’s participation in a wide range of sports such as: Badminton, through the purchase of new equipment.
- As a result, these sports can now be introduced into PE lessons and it is hoped that this will then allow pupils at Stanburn to develop a love for a broader range of sports.
