In April 2013, the new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport they offer.
This means schools should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities 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
Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators:

We want them to use their school and British values to achieve the best that they can be. We want them to grow in our school community with a healthy body and healthy mind.
