In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school receives about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15. This funding has continued into 2015/16 and now into 2016/17
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
In 2014/15 our school received around: £8,865 - This funding has stayed similar each year and in 2016/17 the funding value is now £8,876
