Primary PE & Sports Premium Funding
What is the Primary PE and Sport Premium?
The Government has provided funding of £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.
This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and goes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
