What is the Sports Premium?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport, often referred to as the Sports Premium. This funding was to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.
When asked about the ‘Sports Premium’ at its launch, Lord Coe reflected: When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London’s vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport.

I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people. (Lord Coe)
