PE and Sport Premium



Congratulations to the Year 6 and 5 girls for bringing home the Cluster Competition trophy for Handball this evening. Brilliant team spirit! Thanks to Unity for organising the event and to our amazing parent supporters (including the Thornber army).


School Sports Funding


The Government has provided all schools with funding to improve physical education and sport in primary schools.

We have allocated the funding to the following, which includes the Burnley School Sports Partnership:


  • Promoting high standards of P.E by providing staff with regular opportunities to work alongside quality coaches to aid their professional development.
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Promoting a "healthy lifestyle" agenda across school to combat inactivity through child and staff led initiatives. 
  • Buying into "Burnley Football Club in the Community to raise the profile of sport and to provide places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Increasing the number of children taking part in Level 1 and 2 competitions to see the value of competitive sport. 


Please click on the link below to see details of how we use our Sports Premium in school and how this benefits and enhances every child's experience of sport and P.E.

St. Stephen's Primary School is proud to be a member of the Burnley Schools Sports Partnership. The partnership is headed by Helen Tyson (School Games Organiser) and is funded by the Primary and Secondary schools in Burnley and Padiham.


At St. Stephen's, we pride ourselves on our extra-curricular sports program, that saw our children take part in over 25 different events in the last academic year. We think it is important that children experience a wide range of opportunities and so far this year children have competed in competitions involving Hockey, Football, Tag-Rugby, Basketball, Table-Tennis and Cross Country with competitions in Gymnastics, Swimming, Netball, Rounders and Cricket.


Our P.E coordinator, Mr Pye, is also a Parkrun Outreach Ambassador which involves making Parkrun a visible presence in the community and hopefully teach children the value of achieving a healthy lifestyle through running and being active.


Please browse our pictures below to see some of our teams in action.
