The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum 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 primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Impact and Legacy
Pupils will be able to access a range of high quality sporting opportunities during school, at playtimes and after school and will develop skills that can be applied to a range of sports.
Teachers will attend training to improve their levels of skill and confidence when delivering PE and will work closely together to share skills and good practice.
We will monitor the impact of the above by assessing and monitoring children’s PE skills, monitoring the uptake of after school sports clubs / events and by carefully monitoring the quality of PE teaching across the school.
We hope to develop a love of sport and physical exercise that will stay with children throughout their lives.
