School Sports Funding

How to use the PE and Sport Premium:

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • Ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • Provide existing staff with training, mentoring and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively.
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs and holiday clubs 
  • Enter or run more sport competitions 
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games creating a pathway for the London Youth Games.
  • Run sports activities with other schools or companies.
