Sports Funding

Primary School Sports Funding The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for at least four academic years 2013/14, 2014/15,2015/16, 2016/17 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and has resulted in money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for children.

All schools will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for three academic years.

The purpose of the funding Schools have to spend the funding on improving their provision of PE and sport but they have the freedom to choose how they will do this.
