The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the next three academic years to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education; Health; and Culture, Media and Sport. It is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
