PE & Sport: Sports Grant Funding from the DfE
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for PE and sport in schools. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. We received £15,626 during 2017/17 and £17,4000 this financial year.
Each school is free to determine how best to use their funding.
