PE and Sport Premium

Primary Sports Funding


The DfE Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils should leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

What is the Sports Premium?

The Department for Education (DfE) is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the upcoming academic years. The funding was first issued for the academic year 2013/2014.  The funding will be allocated directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all pupils.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision for PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.

At Betty Layward we have decided to use our money to:


  • provide specialised coaches for various sports in PE curriculum lessons
  • increase pupils’ participation in sports and physical activities at lunchtimes, before school, after school
  • provide subsidised places for pupils in sports based after school clubs for our vulnerable pupils and gifted pupils
  • increase the variety of sports after school clubs on offer for all pupils


Our school allocation

Our school has been awarded £ 19,519 for the academic year 2022 -2023 and we intend to use the funding as outlined below.
