PE and Sport Premium

The Government has recently announced a renewed package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £750 million investment to schools in the delivery of PE and Sport in primary schools until 2020.

This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
