PE and Sport Premium

PE & Sports Premium Funding


From September 2013, the government allocated £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This extra funding is allocated directly to primary schools.


Schools receive PE and Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. In most cases, the amount received is determined by how many pupils at the Academy attract the funding using data from the January school census.

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.


For example, funding can be used to:

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


The School Leadership Team and Governors evaluate Pupil Premium and PE & Sport Premium Funding spending and the impact upon attainment and progress of pupils.


Our next Premium Funding Review will be in September 2023.
