Sports Premium Funding

What is Sports Premium funding?

Sports premium funding is an additional government funding that is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities offered to pupils. The government has planned to spend over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. Each school receives £8000 plus £5 per child on roll and should be used to ensure all groups of children have the opportunity to participate in sporting activities. The aim of this funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports programs offered by primary schools, and is provided jointly by various governmental departments, including Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport. Although the funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers, it will be ‘ring fenced’ – this means it can only be spent specifically on PE and sport in schools.
