Sports Premium Funding

PE and Sport Premium

The dedicated primary PE and Sport Premium, which was announced in March 2013 and began the following September, goes directly to primary school head teachers so that they can decide how best to use it to provide sporting activities for pupils. 

Primary schools around England are able to use the premium to:

  • up-skill teachers to improve the quality of sport lessons
  • invest in quality coaching
  • provide more opportunities for pupils to take part in inter-school competitions
  • offer more after-school clubs
  • purchase better equipment
  • introduce new and unusual sports like fencing, climbing, ultimate frisbee and Danish long-ball to encourage more children to enjoy sport
  • improve sport teaching for children with special educational needs
  • deliver holiday and weekend activities
  • boost Change4Life clubs, helping children build a healthier lifestyle
