Primary PE and Sport Funding 2013-14

Primary PE and Sport Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school Headteachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
West View Primary School is to be awarded £5,726 for their PE & Sports Grant for the period September 2013 to March 2014. The school will also receive a further £3,129 for the period April 2014 to August 2014.

DfE guidance states that schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.We plan to use the funding in the following ways:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
