The Government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the academic years, 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/2017 and 2017/2018.
Extra funding is provided directly to schools.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

- provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers
- Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in school games
- Run sports activities with other schools
