Primary school PE and sport funding, also referred to as Sport Premium, was introduced in the 2013-14 year and is an annual lump sum paid to schools which must be spent on improving PE and Sport. Initially, it was guaranteed for 2 years but it has now been extended to 2020. Each school gets £8000 plus £5 for each pupil in key stages 1 and 2.
Further information about how this is spent can be seen in the following reports:
