The government provides funding jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, to see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Southfield Park received £19,595 in the 2017/18 financial year.
At Southfield Park Primary School, we recognise the significant contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all children. In addition, we believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
