PE & Sport Premium
Primary PE & Sports Premium
On the 5th July 2020 the Department for Education (DfE) confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding will continue at £320 million for the 2020/21 academic year.
Importantly, the DfE has also sanctioned any Primary PE and Sport Premium funding from the current academic year (2019-20), that schools were unable to use, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, can be carried forward to utilise in the next academic year.
The Purpose of the Funding
The 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. The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers. The average one form entry primary school will receive roughly £18,000 per year.
The previous expenditure and impact reports can be found at the bottom of this page. This outlines how Dame Ellen Pinsent have decided to allocate and spend their money and the sustainable impact this has had to staff, children and our school.
