Primary School Sport Funding
The Government is providing all schools with additional funding for the next two years, this is to be ‘ring fenced’ for improving the provision of PE and Sport. The amount each school receives is calculated by reference to the number of children on roll plus an additional lump sum. Schools are accountable for how this money is spent.
