Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
At Harold Wood Primary School we pride ourselves on promoting a range of activities through the taught curriculum, extra-curricular activities and visits which promote an active lifestyle. We support the Government's initiative to combat obesity and enjoy being active.
Our school vision is to create a curriculum that develops, motivates and enthuses every child to become a lifelong learner. We are delighted to have received the Bronze Sportsmark Award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activity.
Our Sports Premium Statement
How Will We Use the Money Effectively ?
Our school has bought into the Havering Schools Sports Collective which includes a Primary Support Premium offer. This will include staff training , coaching and mentoring tuition for staff and children and develop the role of Young Sports Leaders and school Games Crew. It also provides opportunities for children to actively compete against children from other schools in a variety of physical activities.
We have also used the Sport Premium to enhance our outdoor learning environment by installing a Fitness Trail. We wanted to develop an outdoor space that would encourage the children to tke part in more active play and challenge and develop their physical skills.
We are part of the Havering Sports Collective which aims to keep all schools in the London Borough of Havering joined together through PE and Sport. Consequently, there has been a greater participation in inter-school competitive sport. The school has been able to take part in both boys and girls football leagues and tournaments, netball, tag rugby, hockey and athletics.
There has been support in training Year 6 Play Leaders and also a member of staff, who run a number of activities at lunchtimes. We have also been able to take part in festivals for children in Years 3 & 4 and participate in new sports such as Basketball. The school enjoyed success in the Basketball where we were winners of the Havering Basketball Competition and went on to represent Havering in the London Youth Games on 30th June at Crystal Palace.
There is CPD provided to develop the knowledge and skills of teaching staff in gymnastics.
There is access to 5-a-Day fitness, which is a fun and engaging programme that teachers use as lesson warm ups and encourage children to be more active.
We are looking at running a Change for Life club.
Children have access to a range of clubs run by our Sports Coach that they would not necessarily attend, encouraging more children to participate and there is a high uptake.
