Primary PE and Sport Premium funding


Primary PE and Sport Premium is provided to primary schools in an effort to make a real difference to PE and sports provision across the primary school age groups and in order for schools to make a real difference to the PE and Sport landscape across the country.  Details on how the funding should be used can be found here.

Schools use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer.  This means they can use the premium to;

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that the 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


For example, schools may use funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively and embed physical activity across your school

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities

  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities

  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs

  • enter or run more sport competitions

  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs

  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school

  • raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2

  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching
