WHAT IS THE ‘P.E & SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING?’

 

The primary PE and sport premium 2019 to 2020 (“the premium”) will be paid by the Secretary of State for Education (“Secretary of State”) to the local authority (“authority”), as a grant under section 14 of the Education Act 2002.

 

In accordance with section 16 of that Act, the Secretary of State lays down the following terms and conditions on which financial assistance is given in relation to the premium payable for the academic year 2019 to 2020. The authority is required to distribute the premium to maintained schools only (including pupil referral units and hospital schools, but excluding maintained nursery schools).

The premium for the 2019 to 2020 academic year is paid in 2 instalments from the Secretary of State to the authority as follows:

 

Financial year 2019 to 2020 academic year Payment date
2019 to 2020 September 2019 to March 2020 30 October 2019
2020 to 2021 April to August 2020 30 April 2020

*Due to the overlap of financial and academic years, the total expenditure of the PE and Sport Premium Funding will not exactly match the total income from the funding.
