PE Funding

PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools

The Government provide additional funding to schools to help them improve physical education (PE) and sport. The funding has doubled this year from £8,000 plus £5 per pupil to £16,000 and £10 per pupil.  

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons;
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs;
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers;
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games;
  • run sports activities with other schools.
