PE and Sports


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school receives about £9,250 annually.

In 2014/15, we received £9295.00. In academic year 2015/16 we received £9306 and in school year 2016/2017 we have received £9306. For details of how we spent this funding and the difference it made, click here.  We currently do not know our funding for the next year but have planned for a similar level of funding. Any additional funds will be used to develop children’s’ understanding of healthy lifestyles.
