Sports Premium Funding

Sport Premium Overview

The government has provided additional funding since 2013 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The government has continued to commit to the sports’ premium funding beyond 2020. 


The Sports Premium Grant (SPG) is government funding to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

 Its aim is to:

  • develop or add to the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) that the 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.

The government has outlined 5 key indicators against which the impact of the grant will be monitored.

These are:

Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity

Key indicator 2: The profile of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport
