PE and Sport Premium

General Information

Sport Premium funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and provides money directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.


Purpose of the funding

Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this. As a condition of the Grant, all maintained  schools must publish information about the use of the Sport Premium on their website by the end of each summer term or by July 31st each year at the latest (see below for our most recent impact report).


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
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
