Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Primary PE & Sport Premium
On 28th July 2017, the Department for Education (DfE) has announced some changes to the Primary PE & Sport Premium pages on the Gov.uk website to reflect recent ministerial decisions on the allocation formula for the doubled Primary PE & Sport Premium.
The high level changes are that from September 2017:
- Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil; and
- Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil
