The government has provided additional funding to improve the physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding is provided jointly by DfE; Health; and Culture, Media and Sport.

Eligibility for Funding:

Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary –aged pupils (in Years 1-6), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2017.

Purpose of Funding:

Schools must spend the funding on improving the quality and breadth of the P.E and sport activities they offer their pupils so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of, but schools are free to choose the best way of using the money.


Since September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors handbook’ and supporting guidance, so that both schools and inspectors know how P.E and sport is assessed as part of the school’s overall provision.
