What is the Primary PE and Sport Premium?

Originally announced in March 2013, the Primary PE and Sport Premium has provided schools with around £150 million per year. In June 2022 the Department for Education confirmed that the funding would continue, at £320 million for the 2022/2023 academic year. In addition, £11 million was also announced to support the continuation of the School Games programme to give particularly passionate and talented young people the opportunity to participate in competitive sports.

The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers. The average one form entry primary school will receive roughly £18,000 for the academic year 2022-23.

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:

  • Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers.
  • Providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them embed physical activity across your school.
  • Introducing new sports or activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport.
  • Supporting and involving the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Entering or running sport competitions or increasing participation in these.
  • Running sports activities with other schools.
  • Encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support or physical activity in your school.
  • Raising attainment in swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum.
  • Embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching.

What you should not use your Sport Premium funding for:

Employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover PPA arrangements (this should come out of your core staffing budgets).
Teaching the minimum requirements of the national curriculum (or, for academies, to teach your existing PE curriculum). The exception is for top-up swimming lessons after pupils complete core lessons.
Funding capital expenditure. NB However if you enter into an Operational Lease as part of a Spread Payment scheme then you will be eligible.
