Primary PremiumYST Primary PE and Sport Premium Guidance
In March 2013 the Government announced that it would provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport. The funding, allocated to headteachers in primary schools is ring fenced and can only be spent on PE and sport in primary schools. The headteacher and governors are accountable for the spending of the funding.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. It is to benefit primary-aged pupils and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Funding for 2018/19 academic year
Please remember, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in receipt of the Primary PE and Sport Premium 2018/19 have their completed reports live on their school websites by Wednesday 31 July 2019.
Schools needing support can access our sustainability toolkit and further guidance using any of the options below.
Funding for 2019/20 academic year
This was confirmed by DfE in April 2019. A total of £320 million will again be made available to primary schools in England to improve the quality of PE and sport. The conditions of funding were released by DfE in October 2019. We are awaiting the published updated guidance.
