PE and Sport Premium Underspend Deadline Extended to 31st July 2021
Posted: Wed, 17 Mar 2021 10:20
The Department of Education (DfE) have postponed their 31st March 2021 deadline for the roll-over funding from 2019-20. Now both the roll-over funding and the premium funding for 2020-21 need to be spent and reported on by the 31st of July 2021.
It is highly recommended that schools use the afPE/YST template as a working document, to record what they have used the premium for. The report will help schools to document the intent, implementation, and impact of their spend as the academic year progresses.
For schools who are anxious about the amount of premium left to spend this academic year, please view '7 Top Tips' for the premium here. Capital expenditure is not a permitted use of the premium by the DfE, which we know is a real concern for many schools in BCP and Dorset.
Please contact Active Dorset urgently via firstname.lastname@example.org if you require advice or an impartial check of your expenditure for this academic year.
