    Information on Primary PE and Sport Premium

    The P.E. and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the P.E and sports activities they offer for their pupils.

    The sports premium helps the sports collective to help you and your children gain more health and sports knowledge.

    Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

    In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

    The Department for Education have produced an information document on how much PE and Sport Premium funding primary schools receive in the academic year 2017/18, and advice on how to spend it. Click here to access the full information.

    Funding for 2017 to 2018

    Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

    Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

    The Department for Education will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017.

    How to use the PE and sport premium

    Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

    This means that you should use the premium to:

    • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
    • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

    For example, you can use your funding to:

    • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
    • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
    • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
    • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
    • run sport competitions
    • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
    • run sports activities with other schools

    You should not use your funding to:

    • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your core staffing budgets
    • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)
