PE Funding

PE Funding

The Government is providing funding for primary schools to improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This has been guaranteed for four academic years, 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015, 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017.

 

This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

All schools have been given a lump sum of £8,000 and an additional £5 for every pupil premium child. For this academic year we have received £8,800. The school values PE and estimates that for this academic year, our total sport expenditure, including the PE funding, will be £50,000. The breakdown of how this money is spent is detailed below. Amounts in italics show the spending of the PE funding.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
  • new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.
