PE and Sports Grant
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It is made up of an annual payment of £8000 plus £5 for every pupil on the school roll.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
Purpose of funding
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.
