We're in it together

Primary Premium

Following an announcement by the Government in July, Active Gloucestershire is delighted to confirm that all primary schools in Gloucestershire will receive a straight doubling of their current PE and Sport Premium funding grant. This means that schools will be able to continue to deliver, further improve and develop their provision of high quality PE, Physical Activity and School Sport provision.

The key changes from September 2017 are:

  • 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

The mechanism for payment will remain the same, with schools receiving seven twelfths (7/12) of their funding in October/November 2017 and the remaining five twelfths (5/12) on 30th April 2018.
