  • 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 do not receive this funding:

How we calculate funding
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, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2018 school census.

If you are a new school or a school teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2018 to 2019, we will base your funding on data from the autumn 2018 school census.
