New funding for sport in Primary schools
We’re going to use the money from this new levy on suger to double the amount of funding we dedicate to sport in every primary school.
And for secondary schools we’re going to fund longer school days for those that want to offer their pupils a wider range of activities, including extra sport.
It will be voluntary for schools. Compulsory for the pupils.
There will be enough resources for a quarter of secondary schools to take part – but that’s just a start.
The devolved administrations will receive equivalent funding through the Barnett formula – and I hope they spend it on the next generation too.
