Primary PE & Sport Premium to Stay Doubled in 2019

 

It’s time to say goodbye to 2018. Fortunately, primary schools can look forward to a helping hand in 2019.

The government will continue to allocate PE and Sport Premium. Funding remains at the current rate, which is double the amount paid to schools in 2016. Although, we’re cautioning schools to expect increased spending scrutiny in the new year.

Due to recent controversies over misuse of funding, the Department for Education has promised more monitoring to ensure compliance with spending rules.

 

Is PE and Sport Premium Changing in 2019?

In 2018/19, most schools (dependent on size) are eligible for £16,000, with an additional payment of £10 per registered pupil. The first (and biggest) sum was paid in Oct/Nov 2018. The second payment will arrive in April/May of 2019. Schools are not required to do anything different at this time.

But don’t forget PE and Sport Premium comes with requirements. Schools must keep a record of purchases and ensure the money is used to improve PE and sports resources. It’s an important process!

How Should Your School Spend the Money?

According to Gov.uk, the premium is designed to increase, support and facilitate physical activity. Investments must build upon existing sports and PE provisions. They should not fill gaps in teaching and schools cannot use the money to deliver curriculum basics.

Keep this in mind when writing your spending report in April 2019. Government regulators are tasked with making sure funds get spent appropriately.

Consider 5 key objectives when spending the cash:

Ensure All Pupils Are Active in School

Promote & Celebrate Physical Activity

Offer Upskilling to PE & Sports Staff

Provide Varied Sports Opportunities

Increase Participation in Competitive Sport
