The Sports Grant
The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school headteachers. While it can only be spent on provision of PE and sport, schools have the freedom to choose how they do this.
