Sports Premium Funding at Hertford Heath Primary & Nursery


The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per year from academic year 2013-2014 to 2015-2016 in order to improve the provision of physical education (P.E.) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Median and Sport – is allocated to primary schools. Hertford Heath Primary received £3 679 in their 2015/16  budget (April 2015). This money is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of P.E. and sport in schools.


At Hertford Heath we will spend the Sports Premium Funding on improving the provision and standard of P.E. and sport.


As a school we take pride in being able to provide a wide range of opportunities in P.E. and Sport across the key stages. Thanks to the staff employed at Hertford Heath, we are able to offer a variety of after school sports clubs including netball, football, dance, multi-sports and gymnastics.

Our allocation of the Sports Premium Funding goes towards our spending on PE.  At our school we:

  • employ a member of support staff as our subject leader for PE and have provided Level 5 (during 2014-15) and level 6 (during 2015-16) PE training for her.
  • are members of the Hertford & Ware Sports Partnership.  This ensures that our children are able to access the full range of PE and sporting activities on offer within our area and also ensures training is provided to our staff. This membership allows us to take part in a variety of sports competitions without paying additional fees.   We take part in the football and netball league, the athletics and multi-skills festivals at Wodson Park and the dance festival at Castle Hall. Talented pupils are also given the opportunity to work with other talented children.
  • have purchased new P.E. equipment to provide more opportunities within lessons and at play/lunchtimes and after school.

All of the above provides our pupils with opportunities to compete and participate in a range of sporting events.
