In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide primary schools with additional funding of £150 million per annum.

This investment was made to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE & Sport Premium.

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

Bee Active can help you achieve the five objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.
To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools through indicators such as:


The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.


The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.


Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

Sports & Activities

Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.


Increased participation in competitive sport.

“All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport”

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
