Sports Funding

Sports Funding & Improvements to Physical Education

At Highfield, we believe that it is vital we spend our sports premium funding in a way that allows us to sustain the improvements that it should undoubtedly bring.  This academic year we have been allocated £10,865.  Our Head teacher Mrs Kemal is fully supportive in our plans of how to use this money which will run alongside the schools existing P.E. budget in order to drive the school forward.

In line with the OFSTED inspection handbook we aim to ensure that. “The school’s curriculum promotes and sustains a thirst for knowledge and a love of learning. It covers a wide range of subjects and provides opportunities for academic, technical and sporting excellence”
