PE & Sports Premium Funding 2022-2023

1. Background to PE & Sport Premium   

The Department for Education, Department for Health and Department for Media, Culture and Sport announced in March 2013 that there would be a grant for all primary-aged children delivered through schools. This grant became available in the school year 2013/14 and continues to be available until further notice.  

The aims of the grant are to ensure children have the chance to: 

  • Develop a lifelong love for physical activity 
  • Enjoy PE and sport both in school and outside of school 
  • Compete in challenging sports activities against their peers
  • Work towards and achieve sporting excellence from a young age 

2. Budget allocation for the Academic Year 2022-2023

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. Funding received for this academic year: £18,460.

3. Ofsted advice for spending Sports Premium

It is up to individual schools to determine how best to use this additional funding, however in order to achieve the strategic aims of the grant it is recommended that the money is used to promote physical exercise over and above what is provided in the normal curriculum. Ofsted advise that this money should not be used to provide PE supply teachers (or coaches) to cover planning, preparation and assessment (PPA).
