Branfil Primary School’s Sports Funding

At Branfil Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that a thorough and varied PE curriculum and extensive extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through subscribing to the Havering School Sports Collective, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport with an aim to improving the quality of sport and PE for all school children. Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Swimming at the end of Year 6

  • 50 children were able to swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • 54 children could use a range of strokes effectively
  • 24 children were able to perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
