In April 2013, the Government announced new funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in schools. In 2016/17 we received £4,334. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding and Ofsted will be assessing and reporting on how the money has been spent.
The funding has enabled us to invest in a wide range of exciting equipment for pupils to use to improve their skills in PE. We subscribe to the Buckingham School Sports Partnership who support PE in primary schools including organising courses for staff and festivals for pupils. The school pays for professional coaches to teach different aspects of PE to all pupils including pre-school. Staff have the opportunity to work alongside the coaches to develop their skills in the delivery of high quality PE throughout the school.
