Purpose of Funding

The government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. The extra funding is allocated directly to primary head teachers, carrying on the sporting legacy of the Olympics.

  • Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:
  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs e.g. Change4Life clubs
  • provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
  • run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

They know how this will improve performance, including their stamina, speed and energy levels.
