School sport handed £150m funding boost

The government has announced new funding for school sport and PE worth £150m a year for the next two years.

As revealed by the BBC on Tuesday, ring-fenced money will be given directly to primary schools in England.

Schools will be able to pay for extra coaching sessions to improve the quality of sports and PE provision.
