SPORTS PREMIUM

SPORTS PREMIUM

Funding dedicated to physical activity


Maintained schools, academies, free schools and special schools receive a premium from the Government, designed to enhance the sports and healthy lifestyle provision for children in Years 1 to 6.

It is up to schools to decide how the money is spent, to provide sustainable improvements to their PE and general wellbeing provision, that will last after the Government initiative has ended.

The allocation to each school is £16,000 per academic year, plus £10 per pupil in Years 1 to 6.
