The Government provides schools with a PE Grant each year.  The aim of this funding is to improve the Physical Education (PE) and Sports programs offered by primary schools, and is provided jointly by various governmental departments, including Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport.

Although the funding will be allocated to primary school head teachers, it will be ‘ring fenced’ this means it can only be spent specifically on PE and sport in schools. You can read more about this under ‘Accountability’ below.
