Sports Premium Funding

Government Sports Grant

he Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015, 2015 - 2016, 2016 - 2017 and 2017 - 2018 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 therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. It must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE across the school and particularly, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. Each school will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil in Years One to Six as per the Autumn 2017 school census.
