Each school in the country has been given funding until 2017. This is ring-fenced funding to spend on PE and Sport at the discretion of schools to decide what is best for their children. The funding must be used to fund improvement in the provision of PE and Sport for the benefit of primary aged pupils so that they can develop healthy lifestyles.
