Sport Premium Funding


In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide 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 in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium.

This funding is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

  • In the Autumn Statement 2013, the then Chancellor, George Osbourne announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.
  • On 6th February 2014 the then Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE and Sport Premium until 2020.
  • On the 17th July 2015 the Department for Education announced that 2015/16 funding would remain at the same level as the previous year.
  • On 21st September 2016 the Department for Education released its grant conditions for 2016/17.

October 2017 – DfE publish new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium Grant

On 24th October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant.

The guidance includes:

  • Which schools are eligible to access the funding
  • Funding formula for 2017 to 2018
  • Payment dates for 2017 to 2018
  • How to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium
  • Accountability (Ofsted Inspections, Online Reporting and new the Accountability Reviews)
  • Further Advice

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered.

They should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities the school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

PE and School Sport at Bolton-on-Swale St Mary’s Primary School

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life of Bolton-on-Swale St Mary’s Church of England Primary School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children as healthy and well-rounded individuals.  Through participation, our children develop and learn more about key values such as respect, co-operation, team work and consideration for others. Our aim is to develop lifelong interests in sport and health which are enriching and fulfilling.

We celebrate our participation and success in sport on our weekly newsletters; on our PE display board in the school hall and on our website gallery.

School Games Quality Mark

In 2013 and 2014 our school achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze Award. In 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 our school achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Silver Award. This recognises and celebrates our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive sport to an even higher level.
