Primary PE and Sport Premium

Double funding of PE & Sport Premium for Primary Schools in Devon!

Active Devon is delighted to confirm that following an announcement by the Government in July, primary schools in Devon will receive a straight doubling of their current PE & Sport Premium funding grant. This means that schools will be able to continue to deliver, further improve and develop their high quality PE, Physical Activity and School Sport provision.

The Key changes from September 2017 are:

  • 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

Sport England and other national partners are working with the Government to support the Primary PE and Sport Premium fund and have collectively developed the following vision for PE and School Sport:

‘All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport
