Sport Premium (Year 2016/17)

Sport Premium Overview

At Hatfield Heath Community Primary School we value PE & Sport and believe that all pupils should have the opportunity to participate in competitive sports and games both during and after school. We recognise that whilst sport is valued for keeping us healthy it also supports the growth and development of imperative attributes and characteristics required for success: determination, passion, drive, celebrating success and learning from defeat.

We are committed to using the Sport Premium to provide 2 hours of high quality PE lessons a week, alongside providing great opportunities for sporting competitions and extra-curricular clubs for all our young people.
