Government intervention in primary education has been the very topical issue in a journey to achieving quality primary education that is accessible by school-aged children. The intervention came in a form of Capitation Grant (CG) that sends money to schools to cover examination, administration, sports, head teacher allowance, teaching aids and maintenance. The purpose of the CG among others is to improve students' performance. The objective of the study was to investigate how the government-funding programme influences students' performance in Temeke district public primary schools. It employed descriptive approach with the data collected using close-ended questionnaires, captured and analyzed using SPSS version 20. The study used the purpose sampling technique to get thirty-five (35) participants who completed structured questionnaires. The study found that the government funding programme has influenced learning in terms of availability of teaching aids such as charts and graphs (40.0%), availability of stationery for printing facilities and stationery (37.1%). These were the most mentioned to have influenced learning with moderate extent. Further, the study showed that there is a strong relationship between the Government funding system and students' performance at school (χ 2= 21.81, P = 0.040). These results implied that for primary schools to excel more in PSLE examination, the government has to release enough fund and on time to enable schools to buy the necessary inputs such as teaching aids, stationery and printing facilities. Above all, the government should consider supplying learning tools and should pay costs related to maintenance and school premises. Keywords: Education, Public School, Program, School Performance
