P.E & Sport Premium ‘doubled’ for 2017/18
The DfE have released the following information on the P.E & Sport Premium:
Funding for 2017 to 2018
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
We will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017.
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
- make improvements now that 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 or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
You should not use your funding to:
- employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your core staffing budgets
- teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)
The BHF’s National Centre has released it’s ‘Manifesto for physical activity in the early years’
To guarantee that every child has the best possible start in life the British Heart Foundation National Centre has launched its ‘Manifesto for
physical activity in the early years’. The manifesto aims to ensure that all care providers are aware exactly how active children should be in such
a vital stage of their life. Get the manifesto here:

‘This Girl Can’ receiving international plaudits
Sport England have proudly stated that its This Girl Can campaign is “changing behaviour” a year on from its launch.
Independent research says 2.8 million women aged 14 to 40 who recognise the campaign say they have done some or more activity as a result.
And 1.6 million! of those women say they have started exercising.
Go and see what the fuss is all about!
DfE ‘An investigation in primary schools – The PE & Sport Premium’ – Final research report completed
The Department for Education has published its final report analysing the usage of the P.E & Sport Premium (it is a whopping 127 pages long).
Within the report the DfE specify examples of what they determine to be effective spending of the P.E & Sport Premium, the whole document is very useful but I recommend you definitely have a look at the following pages:
Page 13 – Key Findings
Page 15 – Conclusions
Page 38 – Table 3.2
Page 41 – Sourcing high quality sports coaches
Page 71 – Perceived impacts and sustainability
Page 95 – Conclusions (the longer version)

P.E & Sport Premium guidance – Updated version
The Department of Education has published its updated guidance regarding the use of the P.E & Sport Premium.
Within the article you will find information concerning how much funding your School will receive and when the money will arrive.
Perhaps most importantly this updated guidance provides a few examples on ‘How to use the P.E & Sport Premium’ – it also alludes to how Schools will be held accountable for how they choose to spend the funding.
Interestingly it will appear on the section of your Ofsted report that says ‘effectiveness of leadership & management’. Make sure your SLT are aware of this when you approach them needing support for your exciting plans for the Funding!
