Sports Premium

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. We also have been awarded the Gold Healthy School Status


Our Sports Premium Statement


How Will We Use the Money Effectively ?

During the academic year commencing September 2017 the school received funding of £10,149. The funding will be used to provide specialist sports coaching for staff and pupils, purchase equipment and materials to support the new national curriculum, participate in a range of sporting opportunities for all children. If as anticipated, the Sports Premium is increased, additional funding will be used to contribute towards a Sports Coach.

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, basketball, cross-country, penathlon and athletics.

There has been support in training Year 6 Play Leaders 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 in 2016 at Crystal Palace. In 2016 we were also winners of the Primary Penathlon in Havering and went on to take part in the Copper Box at the London Stadium.
There is CPD provided to develop the knowledge and skills of teaching staff in gymnastics, dance and games.
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 in Spring Term 2018
Children have access to a range of clubs run by members of staff and parents. If we are to receive additional funding, we are looking to employ a Sports Coach to further enhance our provision.
