Primary PE & Sport Premium (PPSP)

Primary PE & School Sport

Active Herefordshire & Worcestershire is committed to supporting schools to inspire the next generation and increase participation in high quality PE, sport and physical activity.

The Primary PE and Sport Premium (PPSP) is ring fenced money to primary schools in order to improve the quality of primary PE; this funding has been committed by the Government until 2020. A significant focus of the premium is how it can be used to provide sustained development of sport, physical activity and PE within schools.

Our support

As the Active Partnership (AP) for Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we receive funding from Sport England to support all of our local, eligible schools to spend their PPSP funding effectively. Together with SGOs, local and national organisations we have established strategies, offers and support networks for all schools who receive PPSP.

Each district in Worcestershire and Herefordshire as a unitary authority have an allocated expert for schools to contact. These are some of the areas in which we are able to support through employed expertise:

  • Recommend and assist with applications to other funding streams
  • Help to develop and implement improvement plans
  • Upskill teaching staff, providing guidance and CPD opportunities to teachers and PE Co-ordinators (go to CPD for current courses)
  • Demonstrating evidence and impact
  • Access to networks and partnerships
  • Advise on how to make informed decisions when spending the PPSP

Contacts for each area can be found at the bottom of the page. Documents with further information and advice can be accessed using the resources link.
