What is it?
The Government has committed funding for Primary PE and Sport to 2020, with £750m to be invested over the course of the next parliament. Each year, Primary schools will receive an allocation of the funding to be used to enhance the provision for PE and School Sport.
Purpose of funding
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, schools have the freedom to choose how they do this.
