Sports Premium


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 and all children take part in 'The Havering Mile' at least 3 times each week.


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 Gold Sportsmark Award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activity. We also have been awarded the Gold Healthy School Status.


Our Sports Premium Statement


We continue to aim to further develop and sustain the improvements made to ensure that each child experiences the benefits. In order to sustain improvements, we combine this additional funding with money from the School’s budget we:

  • Develop staff expertise in teaching PE through providing additional training 
  • Increase participation in sport through the provision of additional clubs before, during and after school
  • Increase participation in local and district competitions and tournaments through membership of the local sports collective.
  • Purchase additional PE resources for use during PE lessons and lunchtimes
  • Promote physical activity to support learning and teaching in other curriculum areas.
  • Have a dedicated Sports coach
