The Government has allocated substantial amounts of money to Primary schools to improve the quality of PE and sport provision in schools. This amount was initially a £8000 lump sum plus £5 per pupil from Years 1-6, for the academic year 2013/14 and again for 2014/15. This has now been extended and each Primary school can expect to receive approximately £9250 per year up to the year 2020. Schools can choose how to spend the money but it must be used to improve the provision of PE and sport.
