Sports Premium Funding
Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
The government is providing funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring-fenced and can therefore only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
