Sports Premium Documents

What is sports premium?

Since 2013, the government has provided additional sport funding to schools. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. As of September 2017 each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport, PE and promoting healthy and active lifestyles. 


What benefits are there?

Through sport children can:

  • develop skills and attitudes that will carry them through to adulthood

  • develop confidence, self-esteem, resilience, cooperation, team work, health and fitness, turn taking, coping with success and losing, conflict resolution, determination, aspiration and desire and well-being – amongst many others

  • learn to play sports and take part in activities and give them the confidence to join clubs and activities outside of school.

Sports Premium 2020/21 (review of spending and impact)

Unspent PE and sport premium grant funding

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Department for Education took steps to relax the ring-fencing arrangements for the PE and sport premium in the 2019 to 2020 academic year to allow any unspent grant to be carried forward into the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

On 17 June 2021 the Education Secretary announced a further relaxation of ring-fencing arrangements for the PE and sport premium. This will allow any unspent grant to be carried forward into the 2021 to 2022 academic year.

Any under-spends carried forward from the 2019 to 2020 academic year, and the 2020 to 2021 academic year, will need to be spent in full by 31 July 2022. Schools should factor this into PE and sport premium spending plans. The 2020 to 2021 conditions of grant documents have been updated to reflect this.
