Sports Funding 2017 to 2018

The PE and sport premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils. This is aimed to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles, combating physical inactivity, increasing parental engagement and ensuring PE is fully inclusive to all children. The amount of funding received has increased for the academic year 2017-18, with schools receiving funding based on the number of pupils on roll. Schools with 17 or more pupils on roll will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The Government will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017.
