We want all pupils to be healthy and active. This is why since 2013 the government has provided ring-fenced funding through the Primary PE and Sport Premium to help improve the quality of PE provision.

The funding allocations for the premium for academic years 2013-14 to 2016-17 are listed in the table below:

Years

Funding

2013-14

£158.9m

2014-15

£159.1m

2015-16

£159.8m

2016-17

£160.6m

From September 2017 revenue from the soft drinks industry levy will be used to double the funding to £320 million a year, enabling schools to further improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport that they offer.
