PE and Sport Premium



Aldi's Tokyo 2020 Sticker Poster has now been completed in school.


This was an initiative by Aldi, for children to eat healthily in and out of school. They were giving stickers out of all the athletes who could be competing in the Olympics next year and it gives us the chance to win a free kit for school and also a chance of winning one of 20 lots of £20,000.


Here is a photo of the completed poster in school.

Well done to everyone involved at school, who have brought in stickers for us to be able to complete the poster. We are going to continue collecting, as we have another poster in school which we are hoping to complete, which will give us twice the chance to win.



As we enter a new school year, here are some images of the highlights regarding PE and School Sport.

We entered 39 events last year, 14 more than the previous year. 


School Games Mark


We have achieved the GOLD School Games Mark for the past 4 years and this year due to COVID-19 they didn't officially administer it in school but as a school we will strive once more to meet the governing standards to hit GOLD once again and then once the school have 5 years of GOLD, then we can aim for PLATINUM. This comes from children participating in clubs after school and at dinnertime, Sports Play Leaders within school helping out, parents willingness to let children participate in as many events as possible and lastly the teachers for their continued support with helping out within and out of school.









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. 
  • Mr. Smart is now our full time P.E teacher, overseeing all of the lessons and extra curricular within school.
  • 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 39 different events in the last academic year and that isn't even including events within school. 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.


We also run an Outdoor Adventure weekend for Years 4, 5 and 6 every Easter where we venture to PGL Boreatton Park. The children spend a whole weekend in the outdoors. They have fun, test themselves physically but also learn fantastic teamwork and cooperation skills. For the last three years, we have had over 50 children (1/4 of the school) attending the weekend.

Swimming Data


This data is also found on the Sports Premium 2021


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.


N.B Complete this section to your best ability. For example you might have practised safe self-rescue techniques on dry land.


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres?

N.B. Even though your pupils may swim in another year please report on their attainment on leaving primary school at the end of the summer term 2020.


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke]?


What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?


Children who are in Year 6 who haven't yet achieved their 25m, will get the chance to go with other classes who are swimming throughout the year.
