The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum from the academic year 2013 onwards to improve the 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 – will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Eligible schools Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census.
The purpose of funding Schools is to spend the additional funding on improving the provision of PE and sport, whilst having the freedom to choose how we do this. To view how our school have chosen to do this, view the links below:
