School Sports Premium Funding
Who receives the funding?
The Government is providing approximately £150 million per annum to provide new primary school sport funding, which is a wonderful legacy from the 2012 Olympics. This funding is being jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
The funding can only be spent on Sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of funding:
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how to do this.
