Primary School Sport Premium

The Government is providing Primary Schools with ring-fenced funding for the academic years until 2020, to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport in their schools.

For the 2018-19 academic year, schools with 17 or more pupils will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. Schools  with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil. Please see further information, including School level breakdown of funding and revised criteria on how the funding can be allocated, here

To take account of the funding criteria changes, an updated website reporting tool for schools has been produced. Find out more here
