Primary School PE and Sport Funding School Statement

The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013-2017 to improve provision of Physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary schools. The funding is ring-fenced and can, therefore, only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


Our school will be looking to spend the additional funding on improving our provision of PE and sport. Some of the ways we may do this are:-

  • Participating in sport competitions and increasing pupils’ participation in School Games;
  • Working with other schools in the locality/region;
  • Providing additional opportunities for gifted and talented children and children with special education needs.
  • Adventurous outdoor activities programme.
  • Join the Crawley School Sport Partnership     


  • Access to a team of staff, including the PE & Sport Strategy Manager and Crawley School Sport Co-ordinator. SSCO can support with curriculum planning. E.g. Development of additional resources, sharing resources library, guidelines on appropriate equipment and support with School Games Mark.
  • Sports Crew Leadership training opportunities.
  • Links to strategic partners, funding streams and wider projects on your behalf, where applicable.
  • Change 4 Life training.
  • Access to the extensive CPD programme.
  • Opportunity to attend a School Games Mark workshop to support schools in gaining accreditation.       


  • The Head teacher, in the termly report to Governors, will report on:
    • How the Primary School PE and Sport Funding money has been spent;
    • An outline of the provision that has been made since the last report;

 A statement will be published on the school website detailing how the Primary school PE and Sport funding has been used
