PE and Sport GrantBackground
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of 150 million
for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE
and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools
with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school receives about
9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15. Funding will continue for 2015/16.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and
breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that
pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach performance levels they are capable of.
In 2015/16 our school had received 4327 so far.
