PE Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The government spent over £450 million between 2013 - 2016 to support the provision of quality Physical Education and school sport to primary-age pupils.  The funding was secured for an additional three years. This extra funding is provided directly to Headteachers for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils and  can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

The purpose of the Funding

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example:

  • Hire specialist PE Teachers or qualified Sports Coaches 
  • Support and involve the less active pupils by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • Provide resources and training in PE 
  • Run extra competitions or clubs to increase pupil participation in school games
  • Run sporting activities or provide transport or equipment to make such activities possible
