SPORTS PREMIUM 2018/19
What is the PE and Sport Premium?
The Government is doubling the funding that primary schools receive to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision from £160 million to £320 million a year. The PE and Sport Premium is part of a series of programmes led by the Department of Education to improve healthy lifestyles among pupils and tackle childhood obesity. As part of the Childhood Obesity Plan, the DfE is also working with other departments and agencies – including the Department of Health and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport – to make sure children are healthy and active.
