What is PE and Sport Premium?
The primary PE and Sport Premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools. In February 2014, the Government committed to continue until 2020.
How is the funding calculated?
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In most cases, it is determined by how many pupils there are in a school using data from the previous year's January school census.
Allocation of funds is split into two payments.
7/12 of the funding allocation (date currently unknown for 2019-2020)
5/12 of the funding allocation on (date currently unknown for 2019-2020)
Our Allocations for Academic year will be announced soon.
