PE and Sports Premium
The government is providing funding for primary school sports. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
What is our approach to spending the Sports Premium?
At Eastfield Primary we believe that all children have an equal opportunity to participate in a broad and balanced curriculum according to their needs, abilities and interests.
Any objectives that school find to be successful, co-coordinators then implement into the school's policies and procedure for the following years to sustain these improvements.
Physical Education and healthy lifestyles are highly valued at Eastfield Primary School. We have a broad and balanced curriculum that ensures all abilities are inspired and educated, strong relationships are nurtured, children are happy to participate in new challenges with a strong emphasis on all pupils succeeding in sport.
Swim 25m - 18 children 60%

What is a Community Sport and Health Officer?
Hello! My name is Mr Shingler, I am the community sports and health officer apprentice at Eastfield primary school. My role at the school allows me to promote healthy living physically and mentally . This is done by supporting classrooms and physical education while also leading some sessions myself, including Balanceabillity and an after school club.
