Primary PE and Sport Premium

  • School Sport

The Government, through the Department for Education are investing more than £150m per year direct to Primary Schools in the form of the Primary PE and Sport Premium fund.

Sport England and other national partners are working with the Government to support the Primary PE and Sport Premium fund and have collectively developed the following vision for PE and School Sport:

All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

If you or your school would like any guidance, advice, support or a 1-1 visit to your school, on the use of your Primary Sport Premium funding or generically on your PE & School Sport offer, please contact Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport at the contact details below.
