Sports Premium Funding

Government Sports Grant

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 16 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
