Sports Premium Funding- £8930
The Sports Premium continues to fund improvements in the provision of PE and sport so that all pupils further develop healthy lifestyles. At Buxton Junior School we believe that sport contributes to the health and well being of our children. The Sports Premium further enhances competitive sport and improves our teaching skills in the delivery of high quality PE lessons. In 2016 our girls football team were Derbyshire champions and a team of Year 3 and 4 pupils won an orienteering competition between local schools.
During 2014-2015 and 2015- 2016, the funding has provided more opportunities for more pupils to access free after school sports clubs ( Athletics, Football and Dance).
Pupils have experienced Hockey taster sessions and gone on to access a local Hockey Club.
More pupil Playground Leaders have received training.
A group of pupils has accessed a Change for Life programme.
Year 3 pupils have participated in Forest School Learning.
Staff have accessed quality CPD and been released to plan alongside PE/Dance/Gymnastics specialists and also observe lessons.
Our PE Coordinator has attended local meetings resulting in pupils participating in a range of tournaments and competitions.
Buxton Junior School was awarded the Sainsbury's Silver Sports Award in July 2015 and the Sainsbury's Gold Sports Award in July 2016.
