What is the Sports Premium
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. For the academic year 2016-17, schools will again be receiving funding for the development of sport.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
