Primary PE & Sport Premium to Double

This afternoon’s Secretary of State’s announcement on school funding, includes a section reconfirming the commitment to doubling the Primary PE & Sport Premium from September 2017.

The new funding will come into action in the 2017/18 academic year schools with 16 or fewer schools will now recieve £1,000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligable pupils will recieve £16,000 and a further £10 per pupil. The Department of Education currently recommends schools to use the PE and Sport premium in order to 'develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers'.  

The DfE has made the following statement:

“The DfE understands that schools are keen to know how much funding they will receive so that they can plan for the next academic year, and are seeking to communicate high level principles in preparation for the new academic year. These will be announced in due course, however, we can confirm that all schools will see an increase in their premium allocation.”

“The Government is committed to ensuring that all schools are fairly funded and that money is invested in the most effective way. After careful consideration, we have therefore decided not to proceed with the proposed healthy pupils capital programme, in order to provide more money to schools through their core funding instead. Schools can, of course, choose to invest their core funding in PE and Sport.”
