Inspiring Bright Futures Together

Sports Premium

The Physical Education and Sport Premium was introduced in 2013 to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education (PE), physical activity and sport in primary schools across the country.


Schools have been directed to use the PE and Sport Premium to:

  1. Develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that the school provides.
  2. Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. 


Schools are required to secure improvements in the following five key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement. 
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport. 
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils. 
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport.
