From September 2013 the government has provided additional funding to every school in the country to improve the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of pupils to develop healthy lifestyles. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that schools should use the premium to:
develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
