Primary and Physical Education PE Sports Premium

Primary and Physical Education PE Sports Premium

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.
