Sports Premium

Guidance on how the PE and Sport Premium may be spent:

Guidance from the DfE : How to use the PE and sport premium: 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE 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

For example, the school can use its funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively and embed physical activity across your school
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • enter or run more sport competitions
  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school
  • raise attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2
  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

The school should not use its funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of the school's core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - with the exception of top-up swimming lessons after pupils' completion of core lessons
  • fund capital expenditure 


Schools are required to publish the following details on the school website:

  • how much funding has been received
  • a full breakdown of how this funding has or will be spent
  • the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • how the school will make sure these improvements are sustainable


At Surrey Street Primary School, we are passionate about providing quality sport and PE. We believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

To ensure the health and well-being of all of our pupils, a range of sporting activities is provided to maximise and encourage participation regardless of ability and gender.
