Sports Premium Funding for 2017 – 2018

Impact Statement


The Government has provided additional funding for the academic year 2017/2018 to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Jointly funded by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, this money is allocated to primary Head teachers. However, the funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
