Aimed at: All Birmingham primary school governors


The Department of Education (DfE) is spending over £340 million on improving physical education and sport in primary schools during this academic year. This extra funding is allocated directly to primary head teachers. Governors in primary schools need to be aware of the PE and Sport Premium because, as with the pupil premium, you need to report on the school’s website how much you have received, what you are spending it on, and what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment as a result.

Governor responsibilities:

  • Evaluating how effectively your school is using the PE and Sport funding to impact on pupil’s learning and achievement
  • Meeting the conditions of funding and Ofsted requirements
  • Ensuring that external providers, where deployed, are safe and effective
  • Ensuring that programmes and projects are embedded within the school and become sustainable


The workshop is designed to support governors in carrying out their monitoring role effectively and in maximising the impact of PE and School Sport Premium on pupil’s learning and achievement.
