PE and Sport Premium

At Francis Baily, we thrive ourselves on being better every day. Our school values highly reflect how our pupils take part in PE. They show curiosity and interest in new sports and activities, they show respect as teammates, they aspire to be the best they can be and look up to sporting role models, and finally they show great resilience in all activity they do.


We have many opportunities at Francis Baily, through our indoor and outdoor PE sessions with either teachers or qualified sports coaches, through extra-curricular sporting clubs such as football, netball or athletics etc.

As a school, we enter a large amount of fixtures, tournaments and associations in and around Berkshire. We aspire to take as many pupils as possible and offer all children an opportunity. Whilst we do understand that not every child can attend every fixture representing the school, we do want children to be exposed to these opportunities.


This page is to advise you of local clubs and events going on, point you in the direction of our Your School Games Page which keeps you up to date with our latest blog and give you the information regarding the PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding. 


Our School PE Curriculum

Each class will have an indoor PE lesson and an outdoor PE lesson a week. The indoor lesson will be a part of our Real PE Scheme, taught through Create Development online platform, Jasmine. Real PE is split into six focus cogs; personal, social, cognitive, creative, applying physical and health & fitness. Please see below the curriculum maps for each year group.


The outdoor session will be skills based for Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, building into sports in Key Stage 2 such as football, rugby, netball, athletics, tennis etc. Please see below our PE journey.


Children will come into school in their PE kit on PE days. Please see below PE days for Spring Term. 

Sports Clubs

We offer a range of sporting clubs after school.  For more information of these and all our after school clubs, please see our Schools Clubs page. We hope to offer more sporting clubs for all year groups in upcoming terms. If you are interested in these clubs, please contact the office.

Sports Premium 2022/2023


What is sports premium?

The government is providing to provide substantial primary school funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


Purpose of Funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they will do this. 


The Governors have agreed that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that the most able children are given the opportunity to attend training and to complete in advanced tournaments and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development. We will receive £20,840 for the academic year 2022/2023. We shall receive a payment of £12,157 in October and £8,683 in April.
