Sports Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum until 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture & Media and Sport - will be allocated to all schools.
 
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools.
 
POSSIBLE USES FOR THE FUNDING
•    hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE;
•    supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs;
•    paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport;
•    providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport;
•    running sport competitions or increasing pupils' participation in the school games;
•    buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport;
•    providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs;
•    pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
