Sports and PE are an essential part of life at High Beech Primary School. Although we have limited facilities on-site to teach and participate in traditional sports activities, we aim to make the best of our amazing location, and use every opportunity to use the vast range of facilities within travelling distance.

We encourage all children to have an active lifestyle and take part in inter-school competitions and events. Many of our children play in local leagues and attend our sports clubs after school.

  • We have an annual sports day for both Early Years and KS1/KS2.
  • All our children from Y2 – Y6 swim weekly and most achieve a high standard.
  • We benefit from our membership of West Essex Sports Partnership which gives us access to competitions, facilities and expertise across a wide range of sports.

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since academic year 2013/2014 to provide quality primary PE and school sport. Each school has received £8,000 plus an additional £5 per pupil for the last two years.
