"To be the best that we can be"

Sports Premium Plan 2016-2017

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The Government has provided all primary schools with funding to help do this.



In the academic year, 2016 - 2017, Ightenhill will receive £9140.00. This funding will be used as follows:

  • 45% payment to Burnley School Sports Partnership £4146.00
  • £5130 to FUNDA to secure a one year contract providing sports coaches to work with teachers in developing their CPD. 4 teachers will team-teach weekly lessons in order to up-skill these colleagues in delivering high quality PE.

    (The additional funding, £136, will be secured through school budget)

  • £200 Tots on Tyres scheme for EYFS children - included in BSSP offer.

1 in 4 children leaving primary school in the UK suffer from childhood obesity. Today’s primary school children are the first generation in history with a shorter life expectancy than their parents.


To start to overcome this, we are working with FUNDA to implement FUNDA’s Primary School Physical Education & Physical Activity Programme. This is a collaboration aimed at bringing the best teachers and physical activity coaches together to find new ways to encourage children to become more active, whilst up-skilling and supporting the continued professional development of teachers in P.E and physical activity.
