Primary PE and Sport Funding 2015-16

Primary PE and Sport Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 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

West View Primary School will be awarded £9,380  for their PE & Sports Grant for the period September 2015 to August 2016.
