Purpose of the funding

The money from the PE and sport premium can be used by schools in a variety of ways. The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

PE & Sports Premium Vision

To ensure that all pupils leaving primary school enjoy physical activity and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

How schools can use the PE and sports premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE and sport they offer. This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining your school in future years.
