Use your PE & sport premium to bring your playground to life
What is the PE & sport premium?
The UK government provides £320m of funding to schools across the country so that they can develop the quality of PE and sport offered to their pupils, and to ensure that any improvements made will also benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Most schools will receive at least £16,000 per academic year and are able to utilise this to make the most of their outdoor space. It’s recommended that children and young people have access to a minimum of an hour of physical activity each day, with a suggested 30 minutes of this being during the school day. Whether it’s during PE lessons, after school sport clubs, or during break times and lunch times – using playground markings is a great way to do it!
Why should we spend our PE & sport premium on playground markings?
What’s more, our playground markings are made from high quality, durable preformed thermoplastic, guaranteed to last at least 4 years but often many more – meaning the markings will be around for future generations to come.
Unspent funding due to COVID-19
As a result of COVID-19, the UK government has agreed that any PE & sport premium funding that has not been spent during the 2019-2020 academic year, and the 2020-2021 academic year, can be carried over into the 2021-2022 academic year. Any underspends carried forward now must be used in full by 31 July 2022.
