The Primary PE and Sport Premium is a government-backed funding initiative aimed at helping primary schools across England improve their physical education and sport provisions.
Originally announced in March 2013, the Primary PE and Sport Premium has provided schools with around £150 million per year. As of October 2017, this figure has more than doubled to £360 million.
