The government is spending £450 million on improving PE and sport in primary schools. The Government have pledged to continue this funding until 2020.
The Department of Education say that schools are free to decide how to spend the grant, but they must be able to show that their spending has led to a “direct and sustained” improvement in sporting provision. The schools action plan and costings documentation can be found below.
