Sports Premium Funding
Prime Minister David Cameron recently announced that the Government is to commit funding for its Primary PE and Sport Premium to 2020, with £750m to be invested over the course of the next parliament.The investment builds on the £150m a year ring fenced fundingcurrently committed for schools until 2016 to increase primary PE and sport opportunities.
Baroness Sue Campbell, Chair of the Youth Sport Trust, described the Government's announcement as an 'incredible commitment' and a unique opportunity to 'transform PE' in primary schools across the country.
"This announcement is an incredible commitment from the Government and with this investment we should have absolute confidence that PE in primary schools can be transformed, ensuring physical literacy is embedded within all primary schools. For some time now we have called for a long term strategy for PE and sport that will allow schools the security to plan for sustainable improvements in the quality of PE teaching in primary schools. If we are to develop excitement, enthusiasm and passion for sport and physical activity amongst young people then we must offer them a high quality PE and sport experience from an early age."
