PE & Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing additional funding to provide new, substantial primary
school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport
in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for
Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to
schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All
state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil
referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and
sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional
funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are
required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional
funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details.
