We received £9,400 in Sports Premium from the Government. We used this to contribute to the Sports Partnership (£3,290) and to fund initiatives, staff training and resources in our school. This money was aimed at improving the provision of P.E. throughout the school and the physical health and wellbeing of our children.


The following is an impact report detailing targets, actions and impact throughout 2014/15 school year.




To hire specialist PE teachers or qualified Sports Coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

Team teaching in key stage 1 and 2, covering standards PE and curriculum enrichment. The sports coach also coordinates and delivers a package of after school activities.


Team teaching has resulted in a 2 way learning environment whereby sports coaches have developed a broader knowledge of the wider curriculum through sport i.e. numeracy and literacy (turning in gymnastics demonstrated links to angles and direction in maths) It has also up skilled key stage 1 and 2 class teachers, who have gained a broader knowledge of PE requirements including delivery, techniques, and skills, this has resulted in a growing confidence for staff delivery and a marked improvement in children’s abilities in PE. Individually, children are showing confidence when performing in front of the class, using more refined dexterity skills. They are also able to talk about their own and others performance, discussing positives and improvements through peer observation. Children are assessed according to their own ability, looking for ways to progress further.

External coaches have been utilised through Burnley Sports Partnership, focusing on gaps in the curriculum and also broadening children’s experience of sport in the community and in Burnley.

Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils participation in the school games organised by School Sports partnership

Competitions are organised by Burnley Sports Partnership, and school indicates which they take part in. Stoneyholme have taken part in 18 events this year. Examples: Tag Rugby, Football, Cricket, Cluster competitions.


Stoneyholme took 10 boys from year 5 & 6 to a Cricket tournament. Our children showed great determination, listening to the rules of the competition and got to the finals and finished 2nd place overall (15 schools attended). The KS2 boy’s football team have improved over the last year particularly in confidence outside their own environment, growing and adapting well, playing as a team, showing maturity with both success and disappointment, congratulating other teams on their achievements. Orienteering provided a good opportunity for both individuals and the whole team to solve problems, read map (cross curricular to geography, maths and literacy) Stoneyholme pupils demonstrated excellent independence skills by winning the overall competition. This year’s rugby team have also shown great promise; in two tournaments they have come 2nd and 3rd in their group respectively.

Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport

£1535.00 spent updating existing equipment and providing new equipment. This includes new bibs, various balls, whistles, pumps and storage sheds.


Children take pride in sports and articulate that sports leaders value them by providing fun, exciting appropriate equipment and kit. This has had an impact on their confidence when going to compete with other schools. New sports introduced i.e. rounder’s has demonstrated an ability to persevere with hand eye coordination and learning new rules and skills, i.e. throwing, catching and batting.

After school clubs can be difficult for children attending Stoneyholme due to external commitments. Introducing extra-curricular lunchtime clubs has provided opportunities for all children to experience a wide variety of sports. 98.5% children in KS 1 and 94% in KS2 have attended a lunchtime sports club; participation for girls has increased across the whole school. The target set for the year was 75%. 23.5% above target is a phenomenal achievement for school.

Supporting School Sport Crews and playtime buddies

Each class teacher chose 4 pupils from their class to have a question and answer session with our Sports Coach and Inclusion Lead. The Sports Crew members were selected on the answers given and the determination shown to take up the role. (1 per class) All sports crew members have attended FUNDA crew training.

28 year 5 and 6 children have trained with FUNDA to deliver playtime games and activities.


Pupils have been trained as playtime, lunch time and after school leaders and now provide games and activities for years 1 & 2 at playtimes and after school; this has shown some aspiring leadership qualities and maturity. Confidence to engage with younger pupils has increased over the last 5 months. Consultation carried out has resulted in the whole school having a greater voice in the sports delivery in school. Children wear their sports crew purple jumpers around school with pride, behaving responsibly and looking after kit.
