Primary PE and Sports Premium Statement

PE and Sports Premium funding is allocated annually by the Department for Education and must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged children, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

On the 16th March 2013 the Prime Minister committed to £150 million a year for the next two years to improve the quality and opportunities for PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is allocated to Primary school head teachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.


In the Autumn Term statement 2013, the then Chancellor, George Osborne announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.


On the 6th February 2014 the then Prime Minister David Cameron committed to continue the funding for Primary PE and Sport Premium until 2020.

On the 17th July 2015 the Department for Education announced that 2015/2016 funding will remain the same level as last year.


On 21st September 2016 the Department for Education released the grant conditions for 2016/17.


On 24th October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1-6.


Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers


  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.


  • The profile of PE and sport is 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.


The documents below detail how we as a school have spent the sports premium allocated to us. Please note this is a live document and will be updated regularly throughout the year.
