P.E. and Sports Premium Grant - May 2017

Background to P.E. and Sports Premium Grant

The government provides primary schools an additional funding (£10, 282 to Rushey Green), for P.E. and sport for the academic year 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 - is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

The premium for the 2016 to 2017 academic year is paid in 2 instalments from the Secretary of State to the authority as follows:

Allocations for the academic year 2016 to 2017 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2016 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £500 per pupil
