Sports Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The Prime Minister and the Government are committed to maintaining the £150 million per annum Primary PE and Sports Premium until 2020. The dedicated fund goes directly to primary school head teachers so that they can decide how best to use it to provide sporting activities for pupils.
What is the purpose of the grant?
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Funding is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (ie between 5 and 11) as at the annual schools census in January.
