Sports Premium 2023-2024


What is the Sports Premium grant?

The government is distributing funding of £300 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding.  This funding is provided jointly by

  • The Department for Education
  • Health and Culture
  • Media and Sport

The money will go directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all the children.


What is the purpose of the grant?

Schools must spend the funding on improving and/or sustaining their provision of PE and sport.  School headteachers have the freedom to choose how this spending is achieved.  This may include:

  • Make improvements to the sport and PE provision to benefit pupils
  • Encourage children to be more active by introducing or extending sports and activities
  • Involve and engage the least active children through after school clubs and reputable external club companies.
  • Organising sporting competitions both in school and against other schools
  • Increase pupil participation.


How have we planned our grant spending for 2023-2024?

  • We have joined the Slough School Sport Network (SSSN).  They provide staff professional development, resources, access to School games and SSSN with associated costs. £5,500.
  • To buy in to Real PE programmes of study for training and curriculum planning. £3,000
  • To provide 11 swimming lessons for 90 pupils at Eton College swimming pool including lifeguard and 2x qualified swim coaches. £6,600.
  • To improve the lunch, playtime, clubs, extra curricular provision in the hall and outdoors. £5,000
  • To replace damaged equipment and storage access. £2,500
