PE and sport premium
Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium in the academic year 2017 to 2018, including:
- schools maintained by the local authority
- academies and free schools
- special schools (for children with special educational needs or disabilities)
- non-maintained special schools (schools for children with special educational needs that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996)
- city technology colleges (CTCs)
- pupil referral units (PRUs provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school)
- general hospitals
Funding for the PE and sport premium
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.
In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2015 school census.
If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2015 to 2016, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2015 school census.
Funding for 2016 to 2017
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
Funding for 2017 to 2018
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
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

PE and sport premium at Park Primary PRU
Our allocated fund for this academic year is £8215
We have 2 main priorities for our sport premium in 16-17:-
- 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)
Our plans for the academic year of 16-17 are to update and replenish sports equipment, invite more professional coaches into school so new sports can be introduced (football, jiu jitsu) and provide school sports teams for our children to participate in.
Our teaching staff are now delivering sessions following their work with YSL last year.
Our costings for 16-17 are:-
- To deliver a varied PE curriculum, allowing professional coaches to engage all pupils and offer expertise and guidance to the school staff
- To introduce new sports through professional sports coaching sessions and allow oppportunities for the pupils to access sport outside of school
Positive Options jiu jitsu coaching- £6154
Bradford City FC coaching- £1050
Outdoor play equipment- £549.90
Replenishment of P.E equipment- £343.88
Amount remaining- £117.22
Using the premium in this way has helped us to develop staff skills, access a new scheme of work and lessons for PE, use facilities outside of school for martial arts clubs and strenghtened community links with local sports associations.
The funding made available for this year is going to be published in October 2017
