Sports funding

The Primary PE and Sport Premium 2018 -19

The primary PE and sport premium 2018 to 2019 will be paid by the Secretary of State for Education to the local authority, as a grant under section 14 of the Education Act 2002.

In accordance with section 16 of that Act, the Secretary of State lays down the following terms and conditions on which financial assistance is given in relation to the premium payable for the academic year 2018 to 2019. The authority is required to distribute the premium to maintained schools only (including pupil referral units and hospital schools, but excluding maintained nursery schools).

 

The premium for the 2018 to 2019 academic year is paid in 2 instalments from the Secretary of State to the authority as follows:

Financial year      2018 to 2019 academic year          Payment date
2018 to 2019 September 2018 to March 2019 30 October 2018
2019 to 2020 April to August 2019 30 April 2019
 

Purpose of the premium

The 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 2018 to 2019 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. 

Basis of allocation

Allocations for the academic year 2018 to 2019 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2018 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 per pupil

Where a school’s pupils are not recorded by year group, pupils aged 5 to 10 are deemed eligible.

In the case of a school which has opened or is due to open during the 2018 to 2019 academic year, the above formula will apply based on pupils recorded on the autumn 2018 school census. Allocations for such schools will be paid by 31 January 2019 (first installment) and on 30 April 2019 (second installment).

The allocations for each school in the authority are published in October 2018 and include schools that were maintained schools at 1 September 2018. Academies receive the premium directly from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).
