Birchfield Community School


Sports Funding

In the academic year, 2018 - 2019 Birchfield Primary School will receive £21,910 in Sports Premium funding provided by the government. The primary objective of the funding is to develop the P.E.S.S.P.A (Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity) that Birchfield Primary School already offers. Additionally, we will build capacity and capability within school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. In line with these expectations our funding will be used towards the employment of P.E specialists to work across the Prince Albert Community Trust. 

The funding is expected to facilitate improvements against 5 key performance indicators: 

  • 1 - Engaging pupils in regular physical activity – kick starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • 2 - Raising the profile of P.E and school sport.
  • 3 - Increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching P.E and sport.
  • 4 - Offering a broad experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils. 
  • 5 - Increased participation in competitive school sport

Following a self-review of P.E and school sport provision we have identified key priorities for the academic year of 2018 – 2019 against the 5 expected outcomes. This report will focus on strategies for further improvement in P.E.S.S.P.A. This is a live document and will be updated throughout the academic year. The report will be finalised in July 2019 including a full review of the academic year 2018 - 2019
