Burton End PE and Sport Premium Report
School's PE and Sports Funding
The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 in order to improve the 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 – has been allocated to all primary schools.
The government outlines two main outcomes for the use of the PE and Sport Premium
- Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
- Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
This funding has been increased for the academic year 2017/2018.
Our vision for 2017-2018
The long term vision at Burton End is to raise the attainment of children across the entirety of PE and sport. We believe that every child should be provided with the means to find enjoyment in physical activity so that they may lead an active and healthy future.
Our aims for this academic year:
- Maintain links with our existing sports coach to enrich our PE and sport provision, as well as support existing staff in delivering high-quality lessons.
- Provide children with the opportunity to participate in more sporting events, with the expectation that children leave primary school having represented us at a competitive event.
- Take an active approach to celebrating the participation and success of our children in PE and sport.
- Further develop our physically active and healthy ethos as a school.
- Review our approach to the teaching of PE and sport to improve consistency across year groups.
- Provide more opportunities for extra-curricular clubs and activities across both KS1 and KS2.
- Find and implement opportunities for staff to continue their professional development in PE and sport.
- Organise activities to further develop pupil engagement in PE across the whole school.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have been given the freedom to choose how they do this to suit the needs of their children.
To date, we have received the following grants:
2014-2015 - £9427
2015-2016 - £5,623
2016-2017 - £9650
2017-2018 - £19,930

- Employ PE specialist PE teachers from our existing academy network to enrich our Year 5 and 6 PE provision.

Our impact to date (September 2017)
- Our morning and after school sports clubs have helped to develop children’s confidence in their physical abilities. It has also improved their overall health and wellbeing.
- Surveys carried out on children, by the subject leader, have shown that pupil’s perceptions of PE as well as general enjoyment and learning had improved over time.
- Participation levels in PE have improved.
- As a result of our continuing professional development, staff are more confident with teaching PE and leading by example.
- In addition to improved enjoyment of PE by children throughout the school, children (where physical participation is not possible) are given responsibilities that have allowed them to participate and learn from the objectives of the lesson. This included taking photos of the learning; providing verbal feedback on their peers’ performances, based on the skill expectations for the lesson; and supporting with general organisation.
