The Department for Education has confirmed that the Primary PE and sport premium funding will continue for academic year 2022-23.
The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers. The average one form entry primary school will receive roughly £18,000 for the academic year 2022-23.
£320 million will be delivered to schools in 2022/23 to give more children access to high quality PE lessons and sporting opportunities, supporting both their physical and mental wellbeing.
Nadhim Zahawi, Education Secretary said:
"The PE and Sport Premium will continue to support schools and I hope that upcoming events like the Women’s Euros and Commonwealth Games will inspire more young people to get active."
"These opportunities will give thousands more pupils access to an ambitious, enriching curriculum that not only supports them academically, but also supports their physical and mental wellbeing."
How can Teach Active help?
The good news is that Teach Active does qualify for the PE & Sport Premium funding. Our lesson plans and resources are designed to deliver the Maths and English curriculum through physically active learning. Plans are written by Maths/English consultants, are mapped to the primary curriculum and cover all objectives from Reception to Year 6.
