Schools since September 2013 have been allocated extra funding for improving physical education. The emphasis is on the provision and expertise being sustainable in the school once the money has been withdrawn. The DFE have allocated this funding directly to primary headteachers and is based on the number of eligible pupils in the school. The funding was initially for two academic years but was extended for another academic year. Schools can choose how they use the funding but it must be based on a sustainability model.
