What is the Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of funding

The PE and Sport Premium must be used to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  • Increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
  • Raising the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
  • Increasing the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broadening the range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increasing participation in competitive sport.
