PE and Sports Grant
For this current academic year, the DfE have confirmed ministerial decisions on the allocation formula for the doubled primary PE and Sport premium. The changes are that, from September 2017:
- Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil; and
- Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.
