PE Funding Information

Primary PE Premium Funding

Following the hugely successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games held in London, the government has allocated additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools.

Each year the government provides  primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the
Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary
schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive money which is earmarked for sport.
