PE and Sport Grant

P.E. and school sport play a very important part in the life at Gordonbrock and we are committed to ensuring that all our children enjoy the PE and sport activities that we offer at our school.

We believe that P.E. contributes to a child’s development and, through participation in sport activities, our children build and learn more about respect, tolerance, teamwork, resilience, friendship, trust and responsibility.

The introduction of the PE and sport grant has enabled us to further develop, strengthen and create a range of sustainable PE opportunities available to Gordonbrock pupils, in addition to and enhancing the weekly PE sessions which they already participate in.

PE & Sports Grant - Frequently Asked Questions

What is the PE and Sport Premium?

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 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.

In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020.

Purpose of the Funding

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport you offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that the school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport
Basis of the Allocation

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, the number of the pupils eligible for funding is determined using data from the January school census.

If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2018 to 2019, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2018 school census.

Funding for 2018 to 2019

  • Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
  • Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
