Sport Premium Funding

Since 2013 the government has provided additional funding to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It was announced in December 2015 that the Government would ring fenced this funding through ‘Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation’. It is anticipated that this funding will continue to 2020 and that it will make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered by schools.

The School Sport Premium Funding is aimed at improving the provision of Physical Education, healthy active lifestyles and competitive school sport for primary school children. The funding must be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport, such as:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Running sports competitions or increasing pupils participation in school games
  • Buying training materials or resources for PE and sport
  • Funding extended school sports clubs
