Primary PE & School Sport

The Sports Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire are committed to supporting schools to inspire the next generation and increase participation in high quality PE, sport and physical activity.

The Primary PE and Sport Premium (PPSP) is ring fenced money to primary schools in order to improve the quality of primary PE; this funding has been committed by the Government until 2020. A significant focus of the premium is how it can be used to provide sustained development of sport, physical activity and PE within schools.

Our support

As the County Sports Partnership (CSP) for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we receive funding from Sport England to support all of our local, eligible schools to spend their PPSP funding effectively. Together with SGOs, local and national organisations we have established strategies, offers and support networks for all schools who receive PPSP.

Each year we organise and deliver two Headteacher PE briefings; to find out more information please use the Headteachers' PE Briefing link below.

Each district in Worcestershire and Herefordshire as a unitary authority have an allocated expert for schools to contact. These are some of the areas in which we are able to support through employed expertise:

  • Recommend and assist with applications to other funding streams
  • Help to develop and implement improvement plans
  • Upskill teaching staff, providing guidance and CPD opportunities to teachers and PE Co-ordinators (go to CPD for current courses)
  • Demonstrating evidence and impact
  • Access to networks and partnerships
  • Advise on how to make informed decisions when spending the PPSP

Contacts for each area can be found at the bottom of the page. Documents with further information and advice can be accessed using the resources link.

New guidance for 2017/18

The Primary PE and Sport Premium doubled at the start of this academic year; now £320 million per year is being invested to improve the quality of PE and sport provision.

  • Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil
  • Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil

On 24th October, the Department for Education published details of the individual allocations at school level and associated funding guidance.

There are some changes to how the PE Premium can be used and schools' accountability. For further information please click here.
