The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum from academic years 2013 to 2014 for schools to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sports in primary schools.
This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school head teachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Total funding grant available to schools in the Grinling Gibbons and Lucas Vale (GGLV) Federation for 2018-2019= £37,319.
