As part of the government’s Childhood Obesity plan, the government are doubling the PE and sport provision in schools, from £160 million to £320 million a year. This year, schools with up to 16 eligible pupils will receive £1,000 per pupil. Those with 17 or more eligible pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 and £10 per additional child.
Much like the pupil premium, those governing are responsible for ensuring that the PE and sports premium is spent appropriately in their school. For more on the PE and sport premium click here.
