Sports Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided 'Sport Premium' funding to primary/middle schools since 2013 to support the delivery of KS2 PE and School Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and Ofsted reports on the expenditure and its impact.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10.00 per pupil.
The Government are not dictating how schools should spend this money, but are clear that schools will need to employ the strategies that they know will support these pupils to increase their active participation in sports.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
