PE and Sports Premium
In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) sport in primary schools in England - The Primary PE & Sport Premium. The Government has commented that they are committed to continuing this funding until 2020 and we await formal confirmation of this.
This funding is allocated to primary school Headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the 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.
