In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2015 – The Primary PE & Sport Premium.
On 6th February 2014 the then Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding until 2020.
In the 2016 Budget, the Chancellor outlined that revenue from the soft drinks industry levy will be used to:
“Double the Primary School PE and Sport Premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year from September 2017 to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. This funding will enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer”.
Your school must publish details each academic year stating this funding has been spent and the effect it has had on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment. It must be spent within the academic year and the detail of how must be published by the 4th April.
Edsential has a template that meets all Ofsted requirements and will support your school in completing and publishing the PE and Sport Premium information required.
“If the authority or a school fails to comply with the conditions, including but not limited to a school misusing the premium, the Secretary of State may require the repayment of the whole or any part of the premium”. DfE 2016
The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE, Sport and Healthy Lifestyles in schools.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport.
Edsential offer a range of services and packages that can support schools in ensuring the effective use of the PE and Sport Premium.
