What is the Primary PE and Sport Premium?

The Primary PE and Sport Premium is a government-backed funding initiative aimed at helping primary schools across England improve their physical education and sport provisions.

Originally announced in March 2013, the Primary PE and Sport Premium has provided schools with around £150 million per year. As of October 2017, this figure has more than doubled to £360 million.

How can the Primary PE & Sport premium be used?

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE & sport offered.


This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities
  • Build capacity and capability for school improvements for future generations joining

For example, you can use your funding on the following:

Provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

Embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school. active playgrounds and active teaching

Introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities

Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities

Partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
