pe & sport PREMIUM



What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing additional funding for sport and PE provision. Recently the government has committed to funding the primary school Sports Premium up until 2020.

Purpose of the funding

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport they offer. They have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits
