Primary PE and Sport Premium funding
The DfE’s Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is that “all pupils will leave 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”.
PE and Sport Premium Funding is therefore designed to support the development of existing PE and sport provision, as well as developing sustainable improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Burhill Primary School is growing and providing all pupils with a high quality PE curriculum, promoting involvement in sport (both in and out of school) and engagement in competitive sport with other schools. We are members of the active Elmbridge and Runnymede Primary Schools Sports Association, and our children have opportunities to take part in competitions and tournaments in a range of sports including football, rugby, athletics, cross-country, hockey and netball, as well as multisports activities in EYFS and KS1. Children benefit from being taught by experienced staff who are passionate about PE and give generously of their time to support children’s participation in sport out of school, both in competitions and extra-curricular activities.
The table below outlines our activities in 2015-2016 to develop PE and sport throughout the school, as well as summarising the impact of these initiatives. Planned activities for 2016-2017 are also shown. Costs, where shown, are specifically linked to the use of Sport Premium funding rather than reflecting all expenditure on activities involving school sport, as these are covered within the main school budget.

Our PE budget for 2016-2017 starts at £9,996. Most of the activities outlined above will continue, with costs in most areas reflecting previous expenditure. The key areas will continue to be: developing the range of PE activities as part of the curricular and extra-curricular programme; developing the expertise of staff to ensure that improvements are sustainable; and continuing to provide opportunities for children to take part in competitions and tournaments so that they develop an appropriate attitude towards sportsmanship.
In 2016-2017 we are also planning the following additional activities and priorities:
- Revisiting our aims for PE to ensure these remain consistent both with our own principles and those outlined in more recent Government and sports’ association documents
- Review long-term curriculum planning in PE
- Developing the leadership role of pupils through Active Surrey’s Sports Leaders initiative (the ‘Sports Crew’)
- Further opportunities for inter-school competition, including a football league and netball league
- Further development of links with local sports clubs
As part of our commitment to PE and sport as part of promoting a healthy lifestyle, the success of our PE and sport provision will be assessed against the following criteria:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
- the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
- whole school participation in the ‘Golden Mile’
