Key achievements 2018/19:

Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need 2019/20:

Assessment in PE.

  • This year, we have bought a PE APP to support assessment. PE lead has attended relevant training to lead assessment in PE across school

Improving our PE resources in order to ensure high quality provision of teaching in all areas of PE.

  • A full audit of resources and equipment was completed and new PE resources were purchased. This has helped to ensure a high quality provision across school.

Broaden and extend opportunities for physical activity across school life

through enhancing outdoor provision i.e. increasing playground equipment;

  •  INSET provided by Playground Specialists for all staff: focus on playground activities and games 
  • Introduction of Play Leaders - Class 4 pupils supporting and leading younger children in playing games on the playground
  • New playground markings widen the range of games pupils able to play on the playground at breaks and lunchtimes
  • Staff training on how to use the new markings
  • Play leaders training on how to use the new markings.

·Participation in an inter-school activity i.e. Football league.

  • Stalmine School participated in the football league at Poolfoot Farm
  • Inter-school Inclusion Events for KS1 and KS2 
  • Multiskills inter-school event
  • Basketball inter-school event
  • Training for all staff to support effective assessment in PE through use of the new APP.
  • To continue to build on the current range of sports available to pupils across school
  • To continue to develop pupil participation, number of competition entries, pupil leadership and links with clubs with a view to acquiring The School Games Mark.
  • To continue to develop the outdoor provision in order to enable a range of physical activities to take place.


Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety 2017-18:


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


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?

Yes, all pupils in all year groups, including Nursery have swimming lessons as part of their PE curriculum.



Staff have a rigorous training programme, through support from Wyre and Fylde Schools Sports Partnership. Specialist coaches lead PE sessions across, allowing teaching staff to note teaching techniques and activities planned. 

We re-visit the Action Plan each term, monitor the impact of the funding (on pupil participation, attitudes, and staff skills, knowledge and confidence), set yearly targets and strive to ensure that these targets are met. Through assessment, there will be worthwhile and effective early intervention measures for children identified as being below the expected standard in PE and sport.


Stalmine Primary School Sports Premium Allocation 2017/18

This year we were allocated approximately £16, 750 (*yet to be confirmed by the DfE in October).

£4560 was spent on buying into the Fleetwood Town Hub School Support.  A coach from FTFC comes into school for a full day each week to work with pupils from Year 1 – 6. He works alongside staff to deliver quality PE sessions and develop/build upon existing staff skills.

In addition to this, we have also bought into part of the Wyre and Fylde School Sports Partnership (WFSSP).  For a cost of £1525, we have access to 5 week blocks of extra-curricular activities throughout the year.  £400 has also been spent buying into additional competitions.  We are able to offer two after school clubs every week linked to a different sport and the children can access these at no additional cost so they are intended to increase participation.

We will use some of our Sports Premium funding for supply and transport costs as follows:

  • Supply - 18 half days = £90 x 18 = £1620
  • Transport – 18 events to attend = £130 x 18 = £2340

Total = £3960

* Due to the recent announcement regarding the increase in funding allocation, we are currently devising a plan for the rest of our funding (approximately £6305).
