Sports and PE Premium Funding


The Sports Premium continues to fund improvements in the provision of PE and sport so that all our pupils further develop and maintain healthy lifestyles.


At Buxton Junior School we believe that sport contributes greatly to the health and well-being of our pupils, and we ensure that all our pupils participate in a variety of sports, outdoor learning and other activities to meet the needs of our pupils, and to encourage them to lead healthy, active lifestyles. 


We use our Sports Premium in a variety of ways:

  • To improve our teaching skills in the delivery of high quality PE lessons.
  • To provide free after-school dance and multi-sports clubs.
  • To allow all Year 3 pupils and other pupils to participate in Forest School Learning throughout the year.
  • To participate in HPSSP and cluster events, including transport and extra staffing where needed.
  • To train Year 5 pupils to enable them to become Playground Play Leaders.
  • To deliver quality CPD for staff, including supply costs.
  • To allow our PE Coordinator to attend local meetings to arrange sporting events.
  • To subsidise Wild Week activities.
  • To provide Bikeability training for Y6 pupils.
  • To purchase PE equipment, kit and resources. 


Buxton Junior School received the Silver School Games Award in July 2015.  We received the Gold School Games Award in July 2019 for the fourth consecutive year and then worked really hard, even during a global pandemic, to achieve Platinum. We are delighted that we were awarded the Platinum Award in July 2022 for our excellent sports provision and commitment to developing our outdoor learning provision for all of our children.
