PE GRANT FUNDING:
In April 2013 the Government announced funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. The rationale behind the funding was to drive improvement in the quality and breadth of PE provision including an increase in the number of children engaging in physical activity.
The funding stream is ‘ring fenced’ which means it can only be used for sport and physical activities. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding in order to develop healthy lifestyles for all children.
