PE and Sport Funding 2018 – 2019



In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. This funding is ring-fenced, to be used for sport specific areas, to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.


Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


Current numbers on roll

Number of children in Years 1 to 6 who are eligible for Sport Premium = 340


Funding received for 2018/19:

Total £ 20,480
