PE and Sport Funding 2018/19
The government is providing additional funding for the academic year 2018/19 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
The primary PE and sport premium 2018/19 (“the premium”) will be paid by the Secretary of State for Education (“Secretary of State”) to the local authority (“authority”). The authority will then distribute the premium to maintained schools in its area.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of the pupils in the 2018/19 to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. Through PE and sport we aim to build confidence, improve and promote the positive mental health and wellbeing of our pupils by giving them opportunities to team build and work together with their peers.
