Many schools will be looking to upskill teachers, especially NQTs who only receive a few hours of training around PE during their PGCE year. Some schools may use the funding to increase the range of sports on offer within the curriculum or as extra curricular clubs. Increasing attendance at School Games competitions is also a valid use of the sports premium funding.
The School Sports Premium funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provison of PE and sport in schools. This could include funding PE support to upskill teachers, enhancing the range of after school sports provision or diversifying your primary curriculum.
