PE and Sports Premium Funding

P.E and Sports Premium Funding

Academic year 2017-2018 – Total funding allocated £19.660


In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of 150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1st September 2013. Since 2017, the government have now improved and enhanced the amount of money provided to schools to invest in PE, Sport and Healthy Lifestyles. Schools will now receive £16000, plus an additional £10 per pupil.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

From government guidance (PE and Sport Premium in Primary Schools), October 2015:

  • Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvement to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
