Primary PE and Sport Premium

How to use the PE and sport premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding from the 2019 to 2020 academic year.

This means that you should use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

All primary schools who receive the grant should be populating the latest version (July 2021) of the recommended template.

As you are aware, this should be on school websites no later than 29th July 2022.
