PE & Sports Funding

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per year to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. £8000 is given to schools with more than 16 pupils on roll, plus another £5 per child aged between 5 and 11. 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 sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
