The Government is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. It is going to be allocated directly to primary head teachers.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to: hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding. We also hold schools accountable by requiring them to publish by April 2014, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their PE and sport grant. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
