The Government has again committed to renewing its package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through this ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is continuing to provide £150 million in additional funding to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11).
