PE & Sports Funding

What is the Primary PE & Sport Premium?

Additional funding from the government to improve PE and sport provision in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It is ‘ring fenced’ meaning it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.


How much is it?

£150 million per annum until the end of the 2016 academic year. Funding from September 2017 is set to rise as a result of the so-called ‘Sugar Tax’ announced in the Government’s budget of March 2016.

Update 2017/2018 - Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.


How can schools spend the money?

Schools have the freedom to choose how they spend the money, to achieve the four objectives below:

To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports

To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence

To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce

Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement


At Hatch Ride, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

We aim to:

  • Foster a love for and enjoyment of PE and sports activities
  • Promote the health benefits of regular exercise and contribute to the physical development and fitness of each child
  • Identify talented pupils in a wide range of different sports
  • Increase the participation of children in sports during lunchtime and after school
  • Develop self-esteem, confidence and a range of other social skills e.g. co-operation and trust
  • Provide children with a way of expressing themselves and an opportunity to be creative
  • Develop a range of physical skills
  • Give children the opportunity to try out activities that they would not otherwise have access to


This is sustained through continued professional development of staff through team teaching with external providers, model lessons, attending courses and working in conjunction with EPC.  We also have a designated Sport Assistant who coordinates all external sport activities including inter-schools competition and matches throughout the academic year.
