Sport England's £18 million Lottery funded primary school facilities fund called Primary Spaces has now opened for applications.
The funding is designed to help more schools provide outdoor multi-sport areas which can be used both within the curriculum and out of school hours.
Schools can receive up to £30,000 to spend on a range of specially created packages which can be tailored to meet their needs.
As well as helping provide sports facilities, staff and volunteers, the school will receive information on how best to use the new facilities and equipment to help children get active.
Priority will be given to those primary schools which currently have little or no outside space for PE and sports sessions.
Applications will be open for four weeks and will close later this month on March 24.
From March to June, Sport England we will assess the applications and select the schools which will receive funding and by the end of June, schools will be notified of the decisions.
