In a Nutshell: Making the most of your PE and Sport Premium Funding
What is PE and sport premium?
The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding
is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may
only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020.
How much funding will schools receive?
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils between the ages of 5-11 on roll will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus an additional premium of £5 per pupil.
Schools with up to 17 pupils will receive the sum of £500 per pupil. Schools will receive the funding in two lump sum payments annually. Timings of these payments vary depending on the type of school. Please refer to www.gov.uk/guidance/pe-and-sport-premium-for-primary-schools
for payment dates.
