Sport Premium is paid by the Secretary of State for Education to the local authority. The authority then distributes the premium to maintained schools in its area as stated in Section 14 of the Education Act 2002. This premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:
hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
run sports activities with other schools
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding.
OFSTED hold schools accountable by requiring them to publish by April 2014, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their PE and sport grant. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.’
