In the academic year, 2016-2017 Highfield Junior and Infant school receive £11,580 in Sports Premium funding provided by the government. The primary objective of the funding is for schools to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of P.E and sport. At Highfield School, the funding will be used toward employing P.E specialists to work across the Prince Albert Community Trust. The funding is expected to facilitate improvements against the following 5 key 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 at Highfield we identified priorities for the academic year of 2016-2017 against the 5 expected outcomes from the sport premium funding. This report is due for update in July 2017 and will publish finalised outcomes from the Academic year 2016-2017.
