A combination of the Department for Health, Department of Education and Department for Culture Media and Sport is making available £150m per annum for two years to help state primary schools put in place more sports activity for their students.

With this assistance, the time is right for more sport and opportunities to be offered to young people in the UK to ensure a healthier and more positive future.
