What is the primary school sports premium?
In April 2013, the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, media and sport announced joint new funding of £150 million to support delivery of PE and school sport. Funding was allocated to develop primary sport in schools. This funding has now been guaranteed by the Government until 2020. Schools will directly receive funding to support improvements in the quality and depth of PE and school sport. Each school will be allocated £8000 plus an extra £5 per pupil per year.
