Physical Education


Sports Premium Grant (SPG) 2021-2022

The Primary PE and Sports Premium began in the academic year 2013 to 2014 when the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools in England.

This funding is allocated to primary school head-teacher. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

In 2017 the Department for Education confirmed the doubling of the Primary PE & Sport Premium to £320 million and published guidance on how it should be used.

Amount Allocated.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

The Purpose of the Sports Premium Grant

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality

 of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer.

This means that school should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years                                                                     


 Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:

  • 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
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole- school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport
