PE and Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

Funding, jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, for schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

Purpose of the funding

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2015 to 2016 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Basic Allocation 

Allocations for the academic year 2015 to 2016 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2015 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £500 per pupil

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
