Pupil & Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Sports Premium

The Government provides specific funding for schools called the Sports Premium which must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer.

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
