PE and sports premium

The Government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE).

Extra funding is provided directly to schools.

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
  • 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
