As part of the Government’s Olympic Legacy Project, funding of £150 million per annum has been provided to primary schools in order to improve provision of PE and sports. This funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sports in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. Below is an outline of how and where this funding has been spent. The impact of the spending has been monitored, please click on the link below to read about the impact in 2021/2022;
