Sports and PE Funding


 Funding for the PE and sport premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2018 school census.

If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2018 to 2019, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2019 school census.

Funding for 2019-20

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

This funding  - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Ingoldisthorpe Primary School receives £16000, plus a premium of £10 per pupil for each academic year to improve our provision of PE across the whole school.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • ·         hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • ·         supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • ·         paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • ·         providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • ·         running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • ·         buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • ·         providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • ·         pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.


From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.
