Sports Premium

P.E and Sports Premium funding began in 2013-2014. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.  The money goes directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. for all of their children.  Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of P.E. and sport although how they do this remains their decision.  


The DfE website states that...


Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding.

This means that you must use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.

Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 - every child should leave primary school able to swim




At Brook Street, we recognise the contribution of P.E. to the health and well being of the children.  We believe that an innovative, varied P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.


Our Primary School Sports’ Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports, competitions, training our staff to deliver in-house quality P.E. sessions and purchasing new, stimulating resources.


How Will Brook Street be using the funding?

The following are examples of how we might use the PE and Sports Premium funding.


• Hiring specialist coaches/P.E. professionals to work alongside our teachers during lessons.

• Hiring professional coaches to deliver after school clubs for our children.

• Providing release cover for the P.E. subject leader to attend training, to monitor the current standards of teaching and to support staff in their own development.

• Providing adult sports leaders to increase the variety and engagement in sport and physical activity at play and lunchtimes and to help develop junior playleaders. 

Buying interesting and exciting resources for our children to use during lessons, at break times and in after school clubs.

• Buying quality assured professional development resources for teachers.

• Identifying pupils who have a talent and support them financially to attend out of school sports clubs.

• To pay for transport needed to get to sports events.



At the end of the year the impact of the funding will be measured.  The evaluation will focus on:


• Increase in participation rates in sports clubs.

• Improvement and development of physical skills for the children.

• Success in competitive school sports.

• Quality of P.E. teaching throughout the school and the improvement of staff knowledge in teaching P.E.


Sports Funding Money Statement 2023-2024


The total amount of money allocated for this academic year is £17,700. We have overspent on Sports provision this year due to seeing the level of need and opportunities to engage in more sports.  The breakdown of spending is as follows.


Payment for Specialist staff

Start date: September 2023

End date – July 2024

Cost: £975 + £3308

We have paid for a specialist football coach to run an after school club to develop skills and increase our competitive programme.  We have also had a gymnastics specialist coach delivering lessons once a week across the year.  Teachers have also received CPD through this offer.  The coach developed skills further for children in an after school club.   This enabled us to then take part in competitive activities.


Play Leaders

Start date: September 2023

End date – July 2024

Cost: £15,589.03

We chose to continue spending on our Sports Leaders Program by further developing the provision at playtime and lunchtime.  Additional staff have been employed to continue offering a full and broad sports package so that the children can experience directed active play.  The impact is clear both in enjoyment levels and active play.  Children can develop leadership skills and take a role in promoting sports amongst their peers.  We see a reduction in the number of accidents at play due to the engagement and supervision 



Start date: September 2023

End date – July 2024

Cost: £200

We have invested in more equipment to replace broken equipment. 


Manchester United Foundation

We have continued to develop our programme with the Manchester United foundation where one of their members of staff provides high quality sports teaching and a wider skills based focus such as leadership and anti-discrimination.  An impact statement is attached below.


Year 6 Swimming

End date – June/July 2024

Cost: Estimated cost: £255


This is to ensure that all children leave primary school with the ability to swim a minimum of 25m.


Sports Day

Cost: £650

This is the second year we have been able to hold a full whole school sports day at an alternative venue since COVID.  With the hire of outdoor areas, provision of portable toilets and refreshments for the day, we were able to give the children a full day of sports and celebrations.
