How is the money allocated?
The primary PE and sport premium 2018 to 2019 (“the premium”) will be paid by the Secretary of State for Education (“Secretary of State”) to the local authority (“authority”). The authority will then distribute the premium to maintained schools in its area as stated in Section 14 of the Education Act 2002
What is the money going to be spent on?
