The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical

education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has been

allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and

sport in schools.


Purpose of Funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and

sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.

A list of possible uses has been suggested.

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively and embed physical activity across school
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • enter or run more sport competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2
  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

Schools are assessed on how they use the primary PE and Sport premium.  How the funds impact on pupil outcomes and how schools are held to account is also monitored.
