‘This is a straight doubling of the current formula and will mean that all schools will be able to deliver further improvements to their PE and Sport provision. The mechanism for payment will remain the same, with schools receiving 7/12ths of funding in Oct/Nov and the remaining 5/12ths in April/May’.

Department of Education statement


Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2017 school census.

If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2017 to 2018, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2017 school census.

Funding for 2017 to 2018

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

We will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017.
