Sports Premium Funding



The Sports Premium Grant is funding aimed at improving the quality of PE and school sports, and to encourage all children to lead healthy lifestyles.


To date, the money has been paid to primary schools since 2013. The funding is provided by the Government Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Schools have to report how they spend this money, and the impact it has had on the pupils on their website. Information has to include the amount of money received how it has been spent, and what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment, to ensure that pupils develop healthy lifestyles.


Benefits of improving the provision of PE and sports are widespread. There will be an improvement in the attainment levels and physical fitness of all pupils in the school. PE provision should also reduce the proportion of children who are classed as overweight or obese. Recent evidence also suggests that physical activity can help to improve the concentration and motivation levels of pupils in all areas of the curriculum, and can help to improve behaviour and attendance.


Schools receive PE and sports Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 using the data from the annual January school census. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional £10 per pupil.
