The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2023 to 2024 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise – from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement.

Allocations for the academic year 2022 to 2023 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2022 census, as follows: schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 per pupil

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • Support and involve the least active children by running after school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
  • Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils' participation in the School Games
  • Run sports activities with other schools.

We have included how we have used the grant in our PE and Sports report to parents for you to see the how this funding is having an impact in school.
