Sports Premium

The DfE has announced the increase in funding with hopes that it will improve the quality of PE and sport in primary schools, helping pupils to be active and healthy.
Under the old funding rate of £160 million, each primary school received a flat rate of £8,000 to spend on sport programmes, with £5 added per pupil. With the funding now increased to £320 million, schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils (aged 5- to 10-years-old) receive £1,000 per pupil, and schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000, with £10 added per pupil.
