Sport Premium

Funding for the PE and sport premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the most recent school census.

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.

This means that we will use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


Following updated guidance from the DfE regarding PE and sport premium funding, schools are required to publish how many Year 6 pupils have met the national curriculum requirements relating to swimming and water safety. See attachment below.
