Sports Premium

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
