Primary school PE and school sport funding        


1.       In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

2.       Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. Schools currently receive a block of £8000 + £5 per child (Y1-6).

3.       Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

How will we be spending the PE and Sport funding and who will benefit?

In the academic year 2016-17 Anthony Bek Community Primary School will have received £8790. We invested £1400 of our funding in affiliating to the Bolsover District School Sport Partnership (BDSSP).

  • Introducing new sports and activities and encourage more children to take part.

  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

    Summary of impact

    Introduce new sports and activities to current school provision and encourage more children to take part.

    Staff attend CPD.

    Purchase resources.

    Disseminate training.

    Staff add new sports to the curriculum or as as after school club to develop knowledge, skills and understanding.

    Amend PE overview to include new sports to ensure future years have a broader range of sports on offer.


    Handball- 20 pupils from Y5/6 (including targeted pupils who have not represented the school in competitive sports) have attended this after school provision, developing their skills, knowledge and understanding of a new sport. These pupils then applied their new skills in the Handball competition (BSSP). All children enjoyed the club and competition and developed confidence and physical stamina during the training and competition.

    Infant Sportshall Athletics/Agility. KS1 staff have received training and resources have been purchased. All children in KS1 have experienced the whole range of events for sportshall athletics in PE sessions using all of the appropriate equipment, e.g. balancer, jumper, bouncer, launcher, runner, striker, pitcher, catcher, bowler, stepper, thrower and skipper. Clubs have been led by trained school staff aimed at competition training and competed at level 2. Staff are more confident in teaching/promoting pupil agility. Pupil outcomes have improved, particularly in co-ordination, spacial awareness and hand-eye co-ordination.


    Broaden the scale of pupils taking part in physical activities outside of the school day (after school clubs)

    Encourage individuals and groups to take part in sports clubs after school.

    Aim more physically active clubs at age groups which are not involved in school games to increase their participation.

    Staff, governors and local sports club leaders to lead these at no additional cost to the school.

    Most interschool competitions are aimed at upper key stage 2 (Y5-6) so in addition to the after school sports clubs to develop skills and prepare for these, we have purposefully aimed other sporting clubs at different year groups to give them opportunities to participate in more physical activities.

    These will be evaluated at the end of the academic year.


    Increase pupils’ physical activity at break times and lunch times

    Develop the playground areas to include more resources, signage etc aimed at making pupils more physically active


    (this includes a £4000 donation from the Shirebrook Academy Trust fund)

    Children and staff have been consulted about the playground games and markings they would like to have. These will be installed in the Summer term.

    We have also identified a small group of physically inactive pupils in KS2 who take part in daily physical games with a teaching assistant at lunchtimes. Many of the games they play at these times, they are playing independently at morning break times, evidencing this intervention is having an impact.

    Provide qualified coach-led extra-curricular opportunities for the children- developing staff understanding

    Chesterfield Football club after school training

    Mansfield Giants Basketball after school club



    (see below)

    25 pupils from Y3/4 attended the football club which will be led by Chesterfield Football Club in the Autumn term. This will be provided again in the Summer term for pupils in KS1.

    20 pupils from Y5/6 attended the Basketball after school sports club led by Mansfield Giants coaches for the duration of the Autumn term. From this coaching, we entered two teams into the level 2 competitions in the area. The teams finished second and third, with the winning team progressing through another level 2 stage and into the final competing at level 3, achieving fifth place. 4 children in the team have subsequently joined a local team which plays at weekends and evenings

    Promote inter/intra school competition.

    Purchase medals for awards.


    We have used the school house teams system to promote intra-school games. Children feel a sense of pride and team ethos wearing their appropriately coloured t-shirts for their house.

    The use of medals and award ceremonies has further helped to encourage children to take part and give their best.

    Develop staff’s understanding of different sports.

    Provide CPD for all teaching staff- for Dance and Basketball and purchase


    Staff were not confident in delivering some PE areas. Basketball has been a focus this year training taking place with the children and staff in PE sessions. Learning walks/ staff discussions have evidenced increased staff confidence and creativity in quality basketball sessions and learning walks/ pupil interviews have evidenced pupil participation, enjoyment and skill development. This includes pupils choosing basketball over football on the playground. This has been particularly evident in relation to girls.

    Increase pupils’ physical activity outside of the 2 hr PE time slot

    Introduce Maths of the Day which promotes more physical activities while teaching maths.


    Introduce ‘ The Mile a day’. Children complete the ‘Mile a Day’ around the school course.

    Install scooter pods to promote pupils being more physically active to and from school










    To be evaluated at the end of the summer term.





    See above for BSSP benefits


    Following support and advice from the BSSP and key developments in school practice, the school are aiming to achieve the gold standard in SCHOOL GAMES.

    The school has entered a variety of level 2 and 3 games in Tag Rugby, Basketball, Netball, Hnadball, Sportshall Athletics, Cross Country, Netball, and Dance and will be entering further events in the summer term.

    Y6 and FS/KS1 children will receive bikeability and balanceability training in the summer term.




    This total does not include the £4000 donation from Shirebrook Academy.


We are committed to spending PE premium funding with sustainability at the heart of our decisions. This is why we are investing most of our funding in purchasing quality PE resources which will last for years and developing our own school staff through on-going training alongside pupils for the whole sequence of lessons, thus giving them the confidence, knowledge and understanding of the whole development of the particular area of sport.
