DfE update on Primary PE and Sport Premium and Healthy Pupils Capital Fund

Yesterday, the Education Secretary announced an increase to all schools’ core budgets.  We are delighted to confirm this announcement also includes a section reconfirming the Department for Education’s commitment to doubling the Primary PE and Sport Premium from September.

While the DfE are aware schools are keen to know how much funding they will receive so that they can plan for the next academic year, they have said they are still working on high level principles in preparation for the new academic year. The DfE have, however, confirmed that all schools will see an increase in their premium allocation.

Within the same speech the Secretary of State stressed her commitment to ensuring that all schools are fairly funded and that money is invested in the most effective way, and after careful consideration has decided not to proceed with the proposed Healthy Pupils Capital programme (announced in the spring) in order to provide more money to schools through their core funding instead.

The Youth Sport Trust welcomes this awaited confirmation and once the DFE high level principles which will underpin individual schools funding are known, we will be publishing our exciting and compelling new vision for Primary PE and school sport and disseminating this widely through our networks.
