Sports Premium

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum 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 will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to

spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The purpose of the funding is

that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but

they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of,

and increase participation in PE and sport. This is so that all pupils are encouraged to develop

healthy lifestyles and have the best chance of reaching the performance levels they are capable of.
