What is Sports Premium?
The government is currently providing additional funding for schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Primary schools receive an £8000 lump sum and £5 for every child over the age of 5 years. 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. -DFE Guidelines.
