Purpose of PE and Sports Grant
The government had provided additional funding of £150 million per annum between 2013-2016 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 – has been allocated to primary school headteachers. Each school has received £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. The Government announced in March 2016 that this premium will be doubled following the introduction of the sugar tax.
