Sports Provision

At Harlow Green our vision is that children will not only develop academically but will develop physically and emotionally so that they are able to lead long, successful and healthy lives.  An essential aspect of this is to develop a love of sport and physical activity.

Within the school day, through PE sessions, break/lunch times and extra-curricular activity, we aim to have children be regularly active and improve their understanding of healthy lifestyles.  All children within KS1 and KS2 have two sessions of PE per week where children will be introduced to games, gymnastics, dance, swimming (Y4) and outdoor pursuits. A great many children in our school find that sport is a particular passion and we have various teams which compete in local competitions.

Schools are now in receipt of specific funding for improvement in sports and health provision – Sports Premium – which the government aims for schools to use to develop practice and have a positive impact upon children’s health.

Below is our school’s Sports Premium Plan for 2017-2018 as well as a link to the National Guidance for Sports Premium.
