The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum from the academic year 2013/14 until 2020 as part of an Olympic legacy fund, to provide ‘new, substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
