The Primary Sports Premium, received by Primary Schools across the country to develop the provision of PE and School Sport, provides a unique opportunity to impact the experience and behaviours of a whole generation of children. In order to support Primary Schools to make informed decisions on how to invest their Sports Premium, a number of local and national agencies are working together.
Sport England, Youth Sport Trust and the Association for Physical Education (afPE) have joined with the network of Active Partnerships; with the local Active Partnership in each area acting as the local source of information for schools.
Leap is the Sport and Activity Partnership for Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes and we are able to provide Primary Schools with information, advice and guidance of the local offer.
If you or your school would like any guidance, advice, support or a 1-1 visit to your school, on the use of your Primary Sport Premium funding or generically on your PE & School Sport offer, please contact Mark Stokes, Children and Young People Development Manager.
We also provide a package of support that brings together key components to help you make the most of your premium funding. You can view the offer here. You can view the offer here.
