What is the PE and Sport Premium?
The government funding is providing £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide substantial new funding for primary school sport. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, with the money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils.
