Pupil PE and sport premium 


Primary PE and Sport Funding

What is the PE and sport Premium?

The Government has provided funding of £450 million per year for improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools since 2013 and this funding is likely to continue until 2020.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for 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.

All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sports clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
