The DfE announcement in October 2018 informed Headteachers of three key changes to the PE and School Sport Premium for 2018-19:

  1. School must publish the full breakdown and uses of the funding for 2018-19 by a new date, at the end of the academic year on 31st July 2019.
  2. Schools are advised not to use their PESS premium to fund capital expenditure, and to seek advice from their own bursar/finance officer.
  3. The Government's report template for the Premium has been updated for October 2018 – click here to view/download.
