What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 which will enable substantial new funding for primary school sport. The money goes to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Each school receives £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year. Schools must spend funding on improving their provision of PE and sport.
