Sport Premium


Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. Funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport.  It has been allocated to primary schools and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

At Buckingham Primary School, we recognise the importance that PE and sports play in the lives of children by promoting healthy lifestyles and developing them physically, emotionally and mentally. We believe that children’s self-esteem, attitude and self-discipline are all improved by being able to engage in and achieve success in sporting activities.

In addition to ensuring that all pupils receive 2 hours per week of well planned, high quality PE - delivered by confident and well-trained staff, we aim to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
