Sport Premium

What is Sports Premium?

Since 2013, the government has provided funding of approximately £150 million per annum to support PE, sport and physical activity in Primary Schools. For the 2017 academic year, this has doubled to £320 million across the country.  This funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary schools’ Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of PE and School Sport for all their children

Government vision for the PE and sport premium:

  • all pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport
  • we would expect indicators of such improvement to include:
    • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
    • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
    • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
    • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
    • increased participation in competitive sport
