The primary PE and sport premium survey, published in July 2019, assessed the impact of the doubling of the PE and sport premium to £320 million from September 2017.

The findings indicated that a large majority of schools identified that, following the doubling of the premium, there had been increases in:

  • the profile of PE and sport in supporting whole school improvement;
  • the confidence, knowledge or of all staff in teaching PE, or both;
  • the level of competitive sport being offered; and
  • the range of PE and sport being offered.

The detailed findings can be found at:

Local Active Partnerships also conduct an annual review of a large sample of schools’ uses of their PE and sport premium, including impact, and report the results of this review to the Department.
