Sports Premium

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 £19,590 in the 2020-2021 academic year and £19,590 for 2021-2022. 

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.

Use of the funding at Southfield Park Primary School

The money has been used to benefit all children regardless of their sporting ability. We will continue to place a high priority on our PE provision and have invested in additional staffing and resources to further enhance the PE curriculum.  In particular:

  • We employ an external company to provide professional coaches to run clubs and lunchtime activities for the children.
  • ‘Craze of the Week’ has been further developed in KS1 and KS2 with additional resources and equipment purchased so that children are far more active at playtimes
  • Trained groups of children to lead and motivate their peers to be active and enjoy sport.
  • We subscribe to membership of the Active Schools membership providing up to date initiatives and training for key members of staff as well as providing competitive events and matches.
  • Subsidies for those in need, to provide places in after-school sports clubs.            
  • Quality assured professional development materials for PE and sport have been purchased.
  • Additional ‘Catch Up Swimming lessons in years 4, 5 and 6 to ensure they reach national requirements before they leave the school.


At Southfield Park, we are committed to further improving our sports provision and as such, we monitor the impact this funding has in our school very closely. Should you have any suggestions/comments to make or indeed have skills and knowledge that would be valuable to our children, please feel free to contact the school.  

In assessing our success, the following key indicators are taken into account:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

The Covid 19 pandemic has inevitably impacted upon provision of sport in school and the level of competitive events in which we have been able to participate has significantly reduced over the last twelve months, this will be factored into our sports provision in subsequent years.
