Primary PE and Sport Funding

What is the PE and sport Premium?

The Government has provided funding each year for improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools since 2013.

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, with money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. 

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • 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
