Since the London Olympics in 2012, the government has provided primary schools with extra funding to improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding, is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on improving the provision
of PE and uptake of sports, particularly to enhance the following:
the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
increased participation in competitive sport
