Sports Premium Funding

How we Spend our PE and Sports Premium


 Last Updated:  10 October 2019

Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the PE and Sport Premium. The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sporting activities they offer their pupils. The Government spent over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2016 and has committed further funding for the next few years. The budget, goes directly to head teachers so that they can decide how best to use it.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

The PE and Sport Premium is used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
