PE & Sport Premium is funding provided to primary schools, in additional to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore, can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. Initially the funding was only to be provided for 2013-14 and 2014-15, however since that time Prime Minister, David Cameron has committed to keeping the Primary PE and Sport Premium until 2020. It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding.
PRINCIPLES FOR THE ALLOCATION OF FUNDING
To ensure that our PE & Sport Premium is spent in the most effective ways the following principles have been agreed.

IMPACT OF SPENDING ON PE & SPORT PARTICIPATION AND ATTAINMENT
PERCENTAGE PUPIL PARTICIPATION IN SPORTING ACTIVITIES BEYOND THE SCHOOL DAY
Participation in sporting clubs continues to be very high. Children not participating in extra-curricular physical activities are identified, and are encouraged and supported to become involved in an activity of their choice. The inclusion of non-specialist dance, multi sports and beginners’ table tennis clubs enables more children to take up places in after school clubs.
