Primary PE and Sport Premium Funding

Primary PE and Sport Premium Funding

In March 2013 the Government announced that it would provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport. The funding, allocated to headteachers in primary schools is ringfenced and can only be spent on PE and sport in primary schools. The headteacher and governors are accountable for the spending of the funding.

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. It is to benefit primary-aged pupils and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.


Schools must publish details of their spend of this funding by 31st July 2019.


In our report, we must include:

  • The amount of Premium received
  • A full breakdown of how it has been spent
  • The impact the school has seen on pupils' PE, School Sport and Physical Activity, and sport participation and attainment
  • How the improvements will be sustainable in the future


Schools are also required to publish the percentage of pupils within their year 6 cohort in the 2018/19 academic year who met the national curriculum requirement to:

  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively
  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations


We will be publishing our data very shortly, but if you would like to ask any questions about this, please contact Angela Idle, using the contact details at the bottom of the main PE page.
