Southfield Junior School

  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

P.E and Sports Premium

The physical education and sport premium funding is used well. Its use has been most effective in enabling pupils to swim and swim competitively. Currently, pupils in Years 5 and 6 are the champions of Swindon and the county of Wiltshire.

Our P.E. and Sports Leader is Miss Chamberlain.

Schools receive P.E. and sport premium funding based on the number of children they have on roll.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that they already offer
  • Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, schools can use funding to:

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • Provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach P.E. and sport more effectively
  • Introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • Run sport competitions
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Run sports activities with other schools

At the end of Key Stage 2 (2018) 55 out of 60 children (92%) were able to:  

  • swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters
  • Use a range of strokes effectively
