The purpose of the funding is to improve provision of PE and sport and whilst the funds are ring-fenced for this purpose, each school will have the freedom to choose how they spend the money.
Possible uses of the funding might include:


  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

  • supporting and engaging  the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs

  • paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport

  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport

  • running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games

  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport

  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs

  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
