PE and Sport Premium

Welcome to our School Sports Funding Page

School Sports Funding is a Government initiative that aims to fund improvements in PE and school sport as part of the 2012 Olympic Games Legacy. In April 2013 it was announced that funding of £450 million would be made available for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school receives about £9,000 anually.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of
