Primary PE and Sport Premium


ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

The Primary PE and Sport Premium funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE:

‘To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.’

At Hillborough Junior School, we aim to see improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

We aim to make use of the funding by making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. This means we will:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sports activities that Hillborough already offers
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

Examples of acceptable uses of the funding:

  • Hire qualified coaches to work with teachers
  • Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • Run sport competitions
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Run sports activities with other schools

Total Funding Allocated:

£8000 + (359 x £5) = £9,795
5/12 May 2015 = £4,078
7/12 Oct 2015 = £5,717


  • Transport, Equipment and Resources = £6,333
  • Continued Professional Development = £2,050
  • Extra-curricular support = £1,412

The expenditure in these areas has enabled the school to fulfil its commitment with regards to the key priorities detailed below.

Impact of 2015/16 Grant:
Our key priorities for 2015/16 were as follows:

  • Offer a broader range of activities for all children
  • Promote healthy living
  • Improve the quality of lessons being delivered
  • Staff CPD
  • Enter a wider range of competitions.

Broader Range of activities:
The PE and Sport Premium has enabled us to expand our before school and after school provision. A clear focus on ensuring there are opportunities for all was at the heart of any decisions made about which activities to offer. As a result the school offered sports such as Boccia, Kurling and Table Tennis on top of more established sports. Through the employment of a specialist Teaching Assistant for PE and Sport we are now able to sustain this variety of opportunities. Some clubs run have been exclusive for specific groups of children, again highlighting our commitment to engage all children in PE and School Sport.
Promote Healthy Living:
The idea of healthy living has key curricular elements within our Science and PSHE programmes of study. To further develop this commitment, the school invited ‘Live Well Luton’ into school to deliver healthy living workshops to all the pupils. This encouraged pupils to think about what they are eating and how this affects their bodies. This was further supported by a display on the amount of sugar certain soft drinks contain and how we can make better choices. Our School Tuck shop is now self-sustaining. Pupils are able to purchase a healthy snack for 20p – this could be a piece of fruit/veg, raisins, babybels or a yoghurt snack. Variety is obviously important so more unusual fruits are offered at certain times.
Improve the Quality of lessons:
The PE and Sport Premium has enabled us to purchase high quality resources for use in lessons and in extra-curricular opportunities. This has also ensured that all pupils have access to the right equipment so that they wait less and are more active in lessons. Having a relationship with Active Luton has enabled us to continue to train staff to deliver high quality lessons. Our own PE staff support in this area also.
Staff CPD:
The school felt it prudent to have key members of staff trained in first aid to accommodate the vast array of activities and competitions we offer and attend. This means that we are able to send a first aider to every competition and that first aid is covered at after school and before school clubs.
As mentioned previously, Active Luton have provided in-house training for all staff members. As a result, the quality of lessons continues to improve.
Enter a wide range of competitions:
The PE and Sport Premium has enabled us to transport pupils to even more sporting competitions (40+ competitions). In most cases we are able to enter more than one team, which has supported us in achieving the School Games Gold Mark. The school has entered many varied competitions included events specific to SEND children. Many performances in these competitions has led to County and even Regional participation.
