PE & Sport Premuim

PE and Sport Premium premium is used to develop or add to the PE and sport activities that school already offers and to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

PE and Sport Premium Nationally

Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium each academic year, including:

  • schools maintained by the local authority
  • academies and free schools
  • special schools (for children with special educational needs or disabilities)
  • non-maintained special schools (schools for children with special educational needs that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996)
  • city technology colleges (CTCs)
  • pupil referral units (PRUs provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school)
  • general hospitals

The following types of school don’t receive this funding:

  • nursery schools
  • studio schools
  • university technical colleges (UTCs)
  • independent schools (except for non-maintained special schools, which do receive the funding)
Funding for the PE and sport premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding. In most cases, the Government determines how many pupils in each school attract the funding using data from the January school census.

Funding for 2023 to 2024

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.

Newfield School believes that Physical Education and School sport has relevance for pupils of all ages and abilities, irrespective of gender or ethnicity. The overriding aim is to promote participation, achievement, sporting excellence, a sense of fun, enjoyment and adventure.


Pupils at Newfield engage in a regular structured P.E. program based around the National Curriculum. Activities include gymnastics, athletics, cricket, football, boccia, swimming, dance and outdoor and adventurous education.

The school has two halls, a hydro pool and outside play areas including outdoor gym equipment.
