PE and Sport premium Funding

PE and Sport Premium Funding

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.

Primary School’s Sports Funding

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum  This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money directly allocated 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.


OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. 

Purpose of Funding

Schools will have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and school sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how to spend it.sed professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

 opportunities for children to compete

The school is already planning to take part in a number of local cluster competitions and tournaments.  We feel it is important that all children have the chance to represent their school and take part in competitive sport against other schools. 

Impact: We will evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We will look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
