Sports / PE Premium

The government introduced a Sports / PE Premium fund for schools to help children adopt a healthy lifestyle from a young age. The funding is meant to allow schools to add to their PE and sports provision. 

This is some of the information published by the government about the Sports/ PE Premium:

Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.
