In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport. The funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding was allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1st September 2013.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
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
• support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs, e.g. the Change4Life clubs
• provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
• run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
• run sports activities with other schools”
