The Sport Premium funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The Government provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This was extended to cover 2015/16 and 2016/17 and the Government has doubled this premium to start in 2017/18. The exact figure schools will receive and how this is to be spent are not too clear yet but information will appear on this page when this is announced.
