Schools are allocated a sum of money, called the Primary PE and Sports Funding to support all children and improve the quality, quantity and breadth of PE and sports provision. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school, and the school must decide how best to use them to improve the breadth and quality of PE and sports provision, including increased participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
