PE & Sports Premium

Between 2013 and 2016 the Government has committed to spend £450 million on improving PE teaching and sport in primary schools.  This funding is being allocated directly to schools in the form of a PE & Sport Premium, which can be spent on a range of activities such as:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with teachers during PE lessons
  • providing resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • running sport competitions and sport activities with other schools
  • enhancing playgrounds and improving children’s physical activity at break and lunchtimes
  • extending opportunities for children to participate in PE and sport by running after-school and holiday sports clubs for pupils.

Schools with 17 or more pupils on roll receive £8,000 plus £5 per pupil per year.

Schools are accountable for how they spend their PE and sports grant and must publish on their website, details of how the money is spent and the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
