School sports grant

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.

This year the school will receive£16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

Local authority PE and sport premium funding for maintained schools in paid in 2 separate payments. Local authorities receive:

  • 7/12 of your funding allocation on 30 October 2018

  • 5/12 of your funding allocation on 30 April 2019
