Sports Funding Spend 2018/19

Allocation 2016/17 :  £ 17700

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
  • supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.


From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. OFSTED will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision. One year on, OFSTED will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact.

Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.

How to measureIMPACT of Sports Funding:

Meet attainment and progress targets in Reading, Writing and Maths at end of KS1 and KS2.

  • Meet Good levels of development target for end of EYFS.
  • Attendance at after school clubs high
  • Participation in PE lessons improved – 100% participate each week in PE for all year groups.
  • Pupils enjoyment of PE and sport activities and events high (measured through pupil questionnaire)
  • Parents’ attendance at sport events hosted throughout the school year.
  • Parent participation in sport events hosted throughout the school year.
