Sports Premium Funding

The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be continue for at least another academic year.

This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers. The Sports Premium is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Eligible Schools

Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5-11), as recorded in the annual school schools census in January.

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. Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • Pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.

Accountability

From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ Handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day. The guidance can be found on Gov.UK Primary Sports Funding
