Primary PE Premium

Government funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools in England

In March 2013 the government announced its commitment to ring fence funding of £150 million per year to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools in England. In February 2014 they committed to continue the funding until 2020.

The vision

By the time they leave primary school, all pupils:

  • will be physically literate
  • have the knowledge, skills and understanding to equip them for:
    • a healthy lifestyle
    • lifelong participation in physical activity and sport
