Bacup Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E. Primary School

Welcome to the Holy Trinity Stacksteads C.E.P.S. Website


The Government have announced that they are continuing with their Grant allowance , called the Primary P.E. and Sport Funding. Schools are allocated a sum of money to improve the quantity, quality and breadth of Physical Education and School Sport provision for all children.

Our indicative Primary and Sport Funding for 2021/22 is £18,042. Schools will be given 65% in October 2021 and the remaining 35% in April 2022. 

Schools are responsible for demonstrating that they are using the money promote healthy and active lifestyles, increase participation in sporting activities and have a strong and positive impact on the quality and quantity of PE and sports provision in school. The following document has been put together to outline how we spent our Sport Premium money in the last academic year, and the impact that it had.

How did we utilise the funding grant?

  • To engage all pupils in regular physical activity:  To ensure all pupils are meeting the government’s requirements of minimum 30 active minutes every day, an all-weather running track has been built and we have implemented the 'Daily Mile' initiative with all Key Stage 2 children alongside their 'Wake and Shake' every morning. Additionally, Year 5 Playleaders organised and delivered sessions to Key Stage 1 ensuring they delivered structured games to all children ensuring 'active play' twice a day. 
  • To promote a healthy, active life: School Council members and Sports Crew tried and tested out our new Moki technology which tracks the daily steps taken by each child. This technology is recorded on the app, which can be viewed by every child once they scan their tracker. The huge success of this technology meant it was able to increase daily physical activity which promoting the Level 0  competition (personal challenge). 
  • To raise the standards of Curricular P.E.: The Sports Premium leader attended the new Scheme of Work course which included access to the new Lancashire P.E. app. Following this, the Sports Premium leader fed back this information through a full staff INSET ensuring the high standards were being met.  Also, the leader implemented a progression of skills document which shows what skills each year group should achieve by the end of each teaching block ensuring a broad and balanced curriculum is achieved.  
  • To engage less active pupils in physical activity: A Change4Life club will be implemented throughout Key Stage 2 which targeted the less active children during lunchtimes to engage them in physical activity. This showed success which can then be further implemented through Key Stage 1 during the academic year 2021/22.
  • To continue to be a member of the Rossendale School Sports Partnership: This means that we are a network of local schools organised under an umbrella of a local High School specialising in sports provision. Benefits of this partnership include (but are not limited to): 101 hours of sports coaching from professional coaches, access to inter-school competitions in a variety of sports, Professional Development courses for teaching staff, as well as the loaning of sports equipment
  • To promote sporting excellence and challenge our children who are Able, Gifted and Talented in sports: Children in school who we believe are Able, Gifted and Talented are taken to events hosted at a local high school and have the opportunity to meet and train with professional athletes – some of whom have represented Great Britain at the Olympic Games. It is hoped that these sessions give our more able children the opportunity to be inspired by sporting heroes, meet professional coaches and use them as a ‘stepping stone’ in to a career in sport. Furthermore, children will be given the opportunities to trial for the ‘Rossendale District Football Team’ where they will be playing alongside similar skilled children and often watched by scouts from larger football teams.
  • To improve the quantity and quality of PE equipment in school: After completing an audit, we have bought PE equipment for both EYFS, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 which has aided delivery of curricular PE sessions. A Year 6 ‘Sports Crew’ will be trained in organising and inspecting P.E. equipment ensuring high quality and quantity equipment.
  • To gain access to Inclusion events and competitions: At Holy Trinity we aim to provide equality of opportunity. As a member of the Rossendale School Sports Partnership, we encourage children with special educational needs or physical disabilities to attend Inclusion Events so that they are able to train in sports and compete in tournaments. We have attended several of these sessions which provided a fantastic opportunity for the children involved.
  • To subsidise Holy Trinity Sports Camp during certain school holidays throughout the year: The aim of this is to provide even more professional coaching and promote healthy and active lifestyles outside of school. These Sports Camps are heavily subsidised by school and held over four separate weeks in the school holidays. Each week comprises of five full days of coaching (5 hours of coaching per day) and can accommodate 50 children per week. This means that over the course of the year, our four weeks of Sports Camps offer a total of 100 hours of high quality professional coaching.

What outcomes are we working towards?

  • Introduce the running track for pupils in EYFS and Key Stage 1 to engage pupils into physical activity.
  • Reintroduce the playleader scheme to increase physical activity participation levels for KS1 during playtimes.
  • Introduce the recognition scheme for pupils using the School Games Values for Playleaders during active play.
  • Improve outdoor facilities to encourage participation in a variety of sports, during the school day and as an extra-curricular club.
  • Introduce a Change4Life club to target the most inactive pupils within school.
  • Introduce the use of ‘Moki’ bands to Year 6.

How will we measure the impact?

  • We will audit the impact of children’s enjoyment and engagement in PE through a Sport-Specific pupil questionnaire to pupils during the Autumn term and at the end of the Summer term.
  • An expected increase in participation and interest in both new and established sports.
  • An increase in the number of pupils taking part in after school sport.
  • An increase in the number of pupils competing and being successful in competitive sports.
  • Last year we achieved a Gold accreditation in the School Games Award, we will continue to achieve this high level of accreditation.
