What is the Sports Premium?


The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.


Purpose of funding


Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • New or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

Amount of funding

Funding has been calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils between the ages of 5 and 11) and at the annual schools census in January 2013. All schools with 17 or more primary aged children will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. The  funding has come into schools midway through a financial year (October 2013), £ 5432 has been received and allocated to a Sports funding cost centre.

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that: all children benefit regardless of sporting ability; that children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments; that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

The table below shows how we intend to spend the sports funding during 2013-2014.
