PE & Sports Premium

Sports Premium Funding 2020 – 2021

Once again this year the school will be receiving the Sports Premium Funding from the Government.

In March 2013 the Government announced a package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the years 2014/15 and 2015/16 to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. In early February 2014 the Prime Minister confirmed this funding would now be extended to 2021 which is excellent news for everyone at Scole.

This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11).

This year all schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil thanks to a doubling of the premium monies.

Our current PE Staffing costs are paid from our Core school budget.


A new PE development Plan has been written for 2020-21 along with our yearly objectives for PE and School Sport at Scole. After the Covid19 outbreak the Government guidelines on spending allow us to carry forward any underspend from 2019-20 into the new academic year. This underspend must be detailed on the 2019-20 report and must then be spent in full by July 2021.

Here is our final Sports Premium Funding Development Plan for 2020-21.

  • SPF Plan End of Year 20.21
  • This includes details of our use of the underspend for 2019-20 and how any underspend from 2020-21 can be used to carry on with the project to improve whole school activity levels, in line with Government guidelines.
  • Our 2020-21 swimming data is also detailed in the final report.
