Since 2013, the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 to 2016, with the key aim of improving the provision of active healthy lifestyle learning within primary schools.
This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary schools across the country. The money is ring-fenced and must be used to improve the application of P.E. and school sport within both curricular and extra-curricular environments. This report outlines PE provision across the federation and the impact of the funding.
