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.

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