Primary PE and Sport Premium

A guide to the ring-fenced funding available for primary schools to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their children.
Primary school children doing PE

To help you to maximise your primary school sport funding, we have put together a comprehensive guide on what to consider before making your investment decisions and details of how the Youth Sport Trust can support you.

The Department for Education have produced an information document on how much Sport Premium funding primary schools receive in the academic year 2016/17. Click here to access this. 

Quality Mark self-review tool

Youth Sport Trust have created a self-review tool to help you assess your school's current provision and outcomes in PE and school sport. This will help you to identify priorities for development and how to maximise the funding available to you. This is accessible through our membership offer

Understanding the impact case studies

Together with the national partners, including Sports Coach UK, afPE and the CSPN, we have developed case studies that look at the background, actions taken, and impact regarding primary schools' use of the funding across a variety of areas, including health, competition and extracurricular activities.
