Primary PE and Sport Premium Grant


img_6705The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding (the funding may continue after this but this has not been confirmed by the DfE). This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children / develop healthy lifestyles.

The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2013.

Based on a full year all schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.  Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.

Funding Period

The sport funding will be paid for the two academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 and potentially for a further five years.


Schools will be held to account for how they spend the sport funding. Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision offered. Schools must publish, on their website, information about their use of the PE and Sport Grant allocation by 4th April 2014. Schools should publish the amount of grant received; how it has been spent (or will be spent) and what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment as a result, to help to ensure that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.

Best Practice

Schools will be able to draw on the information on effective practice taken from case studies provided by the very best schools.  One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey on the first year’s expenditure and its impact.
