Sports Premium

Primary schools in England are going to share an extra £150m per year sports funding until 2020, Prime Minister David Cameron has announced.

The direct funding scheme for school sport, announced last year, is going to be extended for a further five years.

Each year primary schools will continue to receive £8,000, plus £5 per pupil.

As well as promoting good health, Mr Cameron says, school sport has an important role in building "confidence and a sense of achievement".

The funding - the Primary PE and Sport Premium - provides money directly to primary schools, carrying on the sporting legacy of the Olympics.
