Sports Premium Since 2013, the Government has funded schools, through the Sports Premium, to allow them to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, expected to be allocated until 2016, is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to schools to ‘make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.’ The Sports Premium can be used to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that a school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Overall I like the club and it is really fun.’ (year 6 student)
