The primary PE and sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly
to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils between the ages of 5-11 on roll currently receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus an additional premium of £5 per pupil.
