Primary PE and Sports Premium

What is the Primary PE & Sports Premium?

The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013-2016 that is ring fenced and can only be spent by state primary schools upon improving the quality of PE and Sports as well as promoting active healthy lifestyles. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money being sent directly to primary school Head Teachers through two instalments per annum. Schools are expected to ensure that the funding impacts upon all pupils and that quality initiatives can be sustained.

Each school will recieve £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year of funding.

Purpose of the funding

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