What is the ‘Sport Premium’?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding has to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.
School’s must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and Sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
- DfE, 2013
When asked about the Sports Premium at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: ‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London's vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focussing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’
