The PE and sport premium is a government-funding stream designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, or in cases where schools do not follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), the number of pupils aged 5 to 10.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. There are
5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
