Sport Premium 2023-25

The Department for Education has confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will continue for the next 2 academic years (2023-24, 2024 -25)

Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, MUST publish, on their website, information about their effective and sustainable use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding. The reporting deadline for this current academic year is 31st July 2023 but we strongly recommend that you update it regularly.

Schools must publish the amount of Primary PE and Sport Premium received for this year 2022-23; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity, participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future.

Head Teachers, Subject Leaders and Governors will be able to use this simple reporting mechanism to ensure they are grant compliant in demonstrating effective use of the grant to achieve a sustainable impact.

New Digital Reporting Tool

As announced on 19th July 2023, there will be a new Primary PE and Sport Premium digital reporting tool for schools. This digital tool will capture details on how a school has used its PE and Sport Premium and the impact it has had on achieving the aims and objectives of the funding.

The information gathered will include:

  • Figures on the overall spend
  • What the funding has been spent on
  • Whether there is any unspent funding
  • Swimming and water safety attainment
  • The DfE will pilot the digital tool for the academic year 2023 to 2024. It will be a mandatory requirement for schools to complete it from the 2024 to 2025 academic year.

The digital tool will provide a further measure of accountability and will help identify any non-compliant spending of the PE and sport premium. The DfE intend on launching the tool in May/June 2024. They will send information to schools closer to this date, including details of training sessions on how to complete the digital form. In the meantime, please use the existing reporting template, linked above.
