PE and Sports Grant Spending 2023-24


What is the PE and Sports Grant?

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils. The money will go directly to each school to spend on their PE and sport priorities. The money can only be spent on PE and Sports provision.   

How will the funding be used?

  • Enhancing and extending our extra -curricular offer with performing arts clubs 2 evenings per week and qualified, and award winning quality sports coaching in after school clubs.


  • Purchasing new lunchtime PE equipment to enable all children to have access to new and exciting PE equipment throughout their lunch time.


  • Purchasing new PE equipment for use in our wraparound provision to enable constant and ongoing availability of provision to encourage activity.


  • Using external sports coaching and delivery expertise to upskill current staff.


Ensure that high quality resources are sustainable at Barlaston by:

  • Making sure support staff are deployed effectively and efficiently to ensure the best support is available for all children.
  • Ensure the new playground is maintained to a high standard, to ensure it has a long life span to enable children in the future to access it.
  • Ensure that all pupils who want to develop their skills are given the opportunity to do so, during school hours or in after school clubs


Develop children’s enthusiasm for sporting activities by:

  • Ensure that all children have access to all areas of sport through providing a range of after school sport club
  • Provide good quality PE equipment for lessons and playtime
  • Ensure that children respect and know how to look after school PE equipment
  • Ensure, where possible that children attend inner school and outer school sports activities with other schools in the cluster
  • Ensure, through planning that skills are revisited and developed as pupils move through the school


Impact of the above:

  • The children will be introduced to a wider range of team games, and will develop a range of skills including social and behavioural skills, as well as skills linked to the games/ sport being developed


  •  All children will have access to a wider range of PE equipment during lunchtime and lesson time, enabling all to develop skills and use a wide variety of equipment
