Sports Premium

What is the PE and Sports Premium for primary schools?

The PE and Sports Premium for primary schools was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools across England, and can help schools to achieve this aim, as it provides schools with £350 million of government funding to improve the PE and physical activity opportunities for children.

This is to ensure all children have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. The money allocated to primary schools is expected to be sustainable and improve the PE experience for all children. 
School spending must ensure the 5 key indicators are achieved:
  • Engagement of all pupils in physical activity
  • The profile of PE and sport is raised across school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increased knowledge, confidence and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all children
  • Increased participation in competitive sport
Schools are expected to publish their spending of PE and Sports Premium on their website by the end of each academic year. Swimming data is also included in this report. Children are expected to be able to swim 25 metres, perform safe self-rescue and use a range of strokes effectively. The data includes the percentage of children who have achieved all of these.
