This   funding   is   ring-fenced   and   therefore   can   only   be   spent   on   provision   of   PE   and   sport   in   schools. Funding   for   schools   will   be   calculated   by   reference   to   the   number   of   primary-aged   pupils   (between   the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January. Schools   must   spend   the   additional   funding   on   improving   their   provision   of   PE   and   sport,   but   they   will   have the   freedom   to   choose   how   they   do   this.   Schools   are   held   accountable   for   the   decisions   they   make through: including details of their provision of PE and sport on their website.
