Sports Premium

As part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, schools in Britain have received substantial funding. At Green Haworth, we will be using this funding for the following purposes:

  • To give our children free access to a wide range of sports and healthy activities through P.E and after-school clubs.

  • To provide county-wide competition in a range of sports.

  • To ensure that children of all ages experience competition against other schools in the borough.

  • To utilise high-quality facilities that we would not normally be able to access.

  • To train staff to a high level of coaching so there is sustainability beyond having access to Legacy funding.

  • To help children make positive decisions regarding healthy lifestyles.

Sports Premium Grant 2016-2017 (allocation £8,355)


Report by Mrs. Gleadhill, P.E. co-ordinator

The Sports Premium funding was allocated to the school from April 2016 for the academic year. The grant must be used to enhance provision of sports and PE across the school (Years 1 – 6) to encourage participation in sport and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

The funding is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on PE and sports but have the freedom to choose how to do this. At Green Haworth pupils have 2 hours of sport per week and are offered a great variety of after school clubs lead by outside providers and staff, who generously give up their time. Our belief at Green Haworth is that PE and sport should be all inclusive and that and whilst we believe in nurturing talent we believe in giving opportunities to all pupils so that those who may not normally develop a healthy lifestyle may be encouraged to do so.

Leisure in Hyndburn (Swimming lessons)

Our pupils now attend swimming lessons for a term in class 2 and a term in class 3. These should ensure that our pupils leave school with this essential life skill.

Fitness Testing - October 2015

The whole of Green Haworth School has taken part in fitness testing which was organised by Elite Sport Development. We will repeat this testing at the end of the year to see if our PE lessons, extra curricular sports provision and our attitude towards Healthy Eating has an effect on pupil's health.

All of the pupils enjoyed this and saw it as a fun activity rather than a test.
