Sport Premium funding
Sport Premium funding, also known as Olympic Legacy funding, for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the government in March 2013. This substantial sum of £150m per year goes directly to schools in autumn, running from September to August. The new ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and sport – will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England. This could vary from teacher training to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.
