2015 – 2016

In the academic year, 2015/2016, Ightenhill received £9,214.00. This funding has been used as follows:                             

  • 45% payment to Burnley School Sports Partnership

  • £3000 resources – see breakdown in Subject leader file (playground resources and curriculum resources)



  • To accurately assess pupils’ attainment in PE.

  • To implement the Change4Life scheme.

  • To increase the number of competitions the school participates in.


To promote PE and sport in our school, we have:

  • Continued to hold intra-school competitions on a regular basis in PE lessons and in house teams.

  • Established a Change4Life Club - focussing on least active/least engaged pupils – cookery and physical activity

  • Participated in more events organised through the School Sports Partnership.

  • Included key stage one in intra-house competitions and participated in a local gymnastics competition.

  • Provided training for all year 5 children to become our new Young Leaders. Their role is to introduce playground games at breaks and lunchtimes. 

  • Provided a wider range of extra-curricular activities, with particular emphasis on increased participation of least active children.

  • Worked to maintain the Bronze Kite Mark from the School Games Organisation.

  • Participate in the CPD calendar to up-skill teachers and offer additional training to our newly employed sports apprentice.


At Ightenhill Primary School, we feel that is essential to encourage children to develop healthy lifestyles and maintain an acceptable level of physical activity to do this. By offering high quality PE and a wider range of extra-curricular activities, we hope to inspire children to take part in PE and sport on a regular basis. Alongside our partnership with BSSP, we have made the following changes:


  • Employed a full-time ‘Sport and Healthy Lifestyles Apprentice’.

  • Increased the range of extra-curricular activities on offer.

  • Marked the playgrounds with ‘Multi-skills Playground Markings’.

  • Trained our welfare staff on how to use the markings.

  • Encouraged children to be active at playtimes, increased access to equipment and adults who will lead games.

  • Introduced a Sports Crew and Playground Leaders.

  • Increased our minimum swimming requirements by taking year 6 swimming on a weekly basis to develop their health and wellbeing.
