Government has confirmed that primary schools in England will receive the £320 million PE & Sport Premium in 2020/21!
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has announced that primary schools in England will receive £320 million funding from the PE and Sport Premium during the academic year 2020-21.
The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise – from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement.
The funding, which was doubled in 2017, will once again continue at this higher rate of £320 million next year.
The Department for Education has also confirmed that any PE and Sport Premium funding from the current academic year (2019-20) that schools were unable to use as a result of the coronavirus pandemic can be brought forward to use in the next academic year, giving school leaders an opportunity to develop or add to their existing provision, or to make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, said:
During these challenging times, it has become clearer to me than ever the importance of keeping active and how it benefits not just our physical health but also our ability to pay attention, our mood and our mental health too.
“Every family will have had a different experience of the pandemic, and I know that many children will have missed time spent outdoors with their friends – that’s why it’s so important that ahead of a full return to school in September, schools get the certainty they need to prepare their PE and sports activities for next year.
As we move towards the planned wider re-opening of schools and facilities the Association for Physical Education has published guidance to support the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (education based) workforce.

“I’m so happy because I finished the run ahead of lots of other people! I started the race slowly and tried to pace myself so I could run faster at the end. I am glad I got chosen to run and I think I could go even faster if I had another chance! Thank you to everyone that helped at the competition ”- Year 6 Primary Pupil
