I am delighted to confirm the news announcement in relation to the PE and Sport premium funding. Below is the information the Youth Sport Trust have received direct from DfE.


“The DfE have today confirmed ministerial decisions on the allocation formula for the doubled primary PE and Sport premium. The high level changes are that, from September 2017:


  • Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil; and
  • Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

This is a straight doubling of the current formula and will mean that all schools will be able to deliver further improvements to their PE and Sport provision. The mechanism for payment will remain the same, with schools receiving 7/12ths of funding in Oct/Nov and the remaining 5/12ths in April/May. The DfE webpage can be accessed here:


The DfE will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017. “

We will be discussing this further at our SSP Planning Workshop in September. In the meantime you can contact me directly should you have any questions prior to this
