PE Sports Premium

PE Funding

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils they have in years 1 to 6. Funding is determined by using data from the January 2023 school census. For the year 2023 to 2024, the amounts payable will be:

  • schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils will receive £1,000 per pupil
  • schools with 17 or more eligible pupils will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil

Purpose of Funding

Any use of the PE and sport premium must be in accordance with the terms of the grant. This means schools must use the PE and sport premium to:

  • build capacity and capability in the school and make sure that improvements made to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity provision now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future
  • develop or add to the PE, sport and physical activity that the school provides

Schools should see the continued professional development (CPD) of teachers as a key priority to make sure that the future quality of the teaching of PE, sport and physical activity is sustainable. This includes providing staff with:

  • professional development
  • mentoring
  • appropriate training
  • access to external resources

Schools can also:

  • embed physical activity into the school day by encouraging active travel to and from school and having active break times
  • provide targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • help to provide equal access for all pupils to the range of sports and physical activities that the school offers

Schools can also use the PE and sport premium to raise attainment in primary school swimming and water safety by funding top-up swimming sessions for those pupils that do not meet national curriculum requirements after they’ve completed core swimming lessons.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School works in partnership with PE Partner, who provide a qualified coach to deliver multi-sports lessons to all classes in the school. The funding also allows us to provide FA Level 3 Coach football training on a lunchtime for all KS2 children (boys and girls) that are interested. The funding allows us to provide all children with dance and gymnastics coaching from qualified coaches. All teachers attend PE lessons delivered by PE Partner as part of ongoing CPD. We are also always looking for courses and qualifications for our staff to further enhance their skills for delivering high quality PE sessions. St Joseph’s also uses the funding to further promote the profile of sport in school and increased participation in competitive sport.
