What is the School Sport Premium?

Schools with primary age pupils receive the PE and Sport Premium. The funding is based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. This academic year sees the funding dramatically increase and HLC now receives a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil which is funds directly linked to ensuring schools achieve the following:

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

This means that you should 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

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport
