What is the PE & Sports Premium?

The government have set a budget that has been allocated to educational settings to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education, physical activity and the sports offered.

We have listed details about the PE and Sports Premium funding below to help you understand further and guide you with what is to be achieved with the funding.

Purpose of Funding

Schools must spend the funding on improving their PE and Sports facilities.

The Concept

The idea of the funding is to ensure all children attending school have the correct facilities in place to gain the skills and knowledge required to set them up for a healthy lifestyle.

The Aim

To achieve self-sustaining improvements in the quality of PE and Sports in Primary Schools. The Government expects improvements such as increased engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, the profile of PE and Sports to be raised across the school as a key indicator for a whole school improvement, increased confidence and knowledge of all PE teachers and increased participation in competitive sports.

Accountability

Schools will have to explain how they have spent their funding within the school and how this has improved the provision of PE and Sports. The Government have stated that the OFSTED inspections will be altered to correctly track the effectiveness of the funding.

Funding for 2021 to 2022

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

Carried forward unspent PE and sport premium grant funding from the 2019 to 2020 academic year

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.

The breakdown of funding for the academic year 2019 to 2020 is also available.
