PE and Sport Premium
The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Funding is based on figures reported on in the 2013 school census.
Purpose of funding:
The money is ring-fenced which means that schools have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
- Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
- Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/Sport
- Participating in sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/Sport
- Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs
Ofsted holds all schools accountable for how they spend the funding and the impact it has on the school. This forms part of the overall Ofsted report.
