The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Funding is based on the number of pupils
DfE guidance on the conditions of the PE and sport grant for the academic year 2013/14 explains that allocations will be calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 and those aged five in reception as recorded in the January 2013 School Census.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils will receive £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil.
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils will receive £500 per eligible pupil.
Notton house school was allocated 4,396 for the academic year 2013-2014 and 771 for 2014-15. The change in funding is due to a reduction in the number of KS2 pupils on roll.
Purpose of Funding
This funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2013 to 2014 academic year so that they develop healthy lifestyles.
Reporting Impact of Funding
Maintained schools and academies must publish, on their website, information about their use of the PE and Sport Grant allocation by 4 April 2014. Schools should publish the amount of grant received; how it has been spent (or will be spent) and what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment as a result, to help to ensure that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.
