Sports Premium Grant Expenditure

The Government has provided £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 -2014, 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 for primary school sports funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.  This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.  

DfE Guidance on how to use the PE and sport premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.  This means that the premium should be used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that the school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, the funding can be used to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools
