PE funding – ‘administrative error’ panics schools

The government has blamed an “administrative error” for schools being told they would receive almost £500 less than promised for PE.

Schools in England were expecting £8,000 each per year, plus £5 per pupil, as part of a £150m funding plan.

The aim is to improve specialist PE coaching in primary schools, with the first payments due next week.

But this month councils were sent letters telling them that schools would only receive £7,535, plus £5 per pupil.

Local authorities were told they would be receiving tens of thousands of pounds less for PE and sport provision than they had budgeted for.
