Physical Education


Funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in school.

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2016 improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding –provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that the premium should be used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils school in future years

The latest Ofsted (2014) report states:

‘The range of sports activity has widened as a result of the school’s effective use of the primary sport funding. There is a clear action plan for improving pupils’ fitness and well-being and the school has a good measure of success in competitive sports tournaments. Teachers improve their subject knowledge and skills by working alongside specialist sports coaches employed in the school’.
