PE and Sports Premium

PE and Sports Premium Grant

At Great Malvern Primary School, we value the role of physical activity on the health and well being of our pupils. We actively encourage all children to engage in a variety of sports and have strong links with local clubs to be able to continue the offer we provide outside of school. Our aim is develop our children as active healthy individuals who make active choices for life.


Our Primary School Sport’s Funding enables us to continue and extend our provision through increased resources, employing sports professionals to work with the classes and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions. 


What is the PE and Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding  to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. 

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and Sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2022 to 2023 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

The Department for Education (DfE) has published information on how much PE and sport premium funding primary schools receive, and advice on how to spend it. (


Purpose of the funding
