Sports Premium Grant Funding


What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.  It is provided to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in schools.  Indicators of such improvement will include:

  • Indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity –  the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • Indicator 2: The profile of PE, Sport and Physical Activity being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching physical Education and sport
  • Indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport


The Department for Education's vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium:

'ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.'

How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Each school receives a Sports Premium Grant.  This year, we are receiving £17,140.

The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools for years 1 to 4, in order to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
