P.E. Government Funding

For 2015-2016, the government is providing additional funding of for the academic year 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 Head teachers.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
