PE and Sport Grant for Primary Schools

The Prime Minister has announced that primary schools in England are going to share an extra £150 million until 2020. The direct funding scheme for school sport, announced last year, is going to be extended for a further five years. Each year primary schools will continue to receive £8,000, plus £5 per pupil. As well as promoting good health, school sport has an important role in building "confidence and a sense of achievement". The funding provides this money in order for schools to carry on the sporting legacy of the Olympics. There have also been repeated warnings about childhood obesity and lack of exercise.
