PE Funding Reports
In April 2013, the Government announced funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision.
Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school has typically received about £9,250 annually.
In 2017-2018 schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils will receive £1,000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
