School Sport Funding Doubled!
We are excited to announce that the Department of Education have confirmed that the Primary PE and School Sport funding will be doubled for the next academic year of 2017-18.
Starting in September, all schools will see an increase in their allocation of funding for physical education.
Olympic swimmer and Managing Director of Total Swimming Ltd, Steve Parry, said
“It’s great to hear that the Department of Education has increased funding for school sport. Physical Education is about so much more than creating the next generation of athletes, it teaches children important skills to take with them into their adult life.
As well as general health and fitness, PE encourages teamwork, leadership, determination – so many skills that without school sport, they might not have the opportunity to develop.”
