SportS Premium

At Heathmere, we prioritise the children’s physical health as we consider this a vital element of our children’s well-being. All children are encouraged to be active at playtimes and the PE curriculum is an essential part of the week at Heathmere. Children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers.

At Heathmere, we do provide lots of opportunities for the children to be physically active. These include:

  • 2 hours of PE per week
  • Specialists who deliver dance, gym, tennis and swimming
  • A wide variety of after school sports clubs
  • Additional coaches at lunchtime
  • Engagement in the Daily Mile
  • A uniform policy that encourages all children to be active
  • Regular participation in sporting events
The Sports Premium Funding at Heathmere is used for:
  • Subsidising sports clubs
  • An additional swimming teacher
  • Attendance at competitions
  • Training sports leaders
  • Providing high quality equipment at playtimes to encourage active participation
  • Modelled lessons
