Click on the links to read more.



The Sports Premium was introduced to fund improvements to the provision of

PE and sport,for the benefit of primary-aged pupils to encourage them to develop

healthy lifestyles. It is allocated to schools to work with all pupils.

The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve provision of

physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture,

Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and must only be spent on provision of

PE and sport in schools.


Schools are free to determine how best to use the funding to improve their

PE and sports provision, to help increase participation and allow children to

develop and reach the performance levels that they are capable of.
