Lincoln MP Karl McCartney welcomes £2.5million Olympic Legacy funding for Lincolnshire primary schools
Lincoln MP Karl McCartney has welcomed the news that almost £2.5 million will go to primary schools across Lincolnshire to transform school sport.
The county's primary schools will receive £2,390,500 as part of the Government's £150 million Olympic legacy fund to improve the quality of provision in every state primary school in England.
Each school will receive a lump sum along with a per-pupil top up and it will be ring-fenced funding, meaning it can only be spent on sporting activities.
Lincoln’s Member of Parliament, Karl McCartney MP said: "Young people in primary schools across the City of Lincoln will benefit from this announcement.

"This money will help to secure the Olympic legacy and support our gold medal winners of the future."
Olympic gold medal winner Jessica Ennis CBE has backed the plans.
She said: “It is great to see initiatives that help to give really young children the chance to take part in sport.
"This latest funding for primary schools sounds fantastic.
"Now whether in an inner city or small rural community, young kids will be introduced to fun ways to be active that will spark an interest in taking part in sport as they grow up.”
