What is PE and Sport Premium Funding?

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of Physical Education (PE), physical activity and sport in primary schools. This funding is referred to as the PE and Sports Premium and is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.  

The funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport. Sports Premium should be used to build capacity within the school and we are working to ensure that improvements made will benefit pupils in future years.

How much does the school receive and how can the funding be used?

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. 

Our school will be held accountable for how we use this funding to support pupils' progress and participation in PE, physical activity and sport. 

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • to hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • to provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively and embed physical activity across the school
  • to introduce new sports, dance or other activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • to support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs
  • to enter or run more sport competitions
  • to run sports activities/clubs with other schools
  • to embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching
