The PEA Sport Premium is a grant of money for primary schools with 250 children or more. The grant is around £9.250.00 per 250 children that attend the school. This grant is to improve the quality of sport that the children recieve in their Physical Education lessons. 


The PEA Sport premium have various partner governing bodies, these are: Sport England - this organisation is lottery funded, The FA Skills project, 

The afPE (Association for Physical Education) have a guidance of how the Primary schools should spend their money and with this guidance they also have 4 main objectives of what the outcome of this additional funding should do for the school children and also this whole school. 


The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports
  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
  • To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
  • Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement
