Specialised Subjects 


Physical Education plays a very important part in life at Latton Green Primary Academy, each class receives two PE lessons in the curriculum per week. Our high quality PE curriculum offers a wide variety of activities both in and out of curriculum time. Our children learn that being active is fun and an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. At the beginning of their school life our children learn and explore basic movement skills, such as riding balance bikes, and they develop these skills throughout their time at Latton Green Primary Academy and leave as confident movers able to participate in a range of activities.

At Foundation Stage and KS1, our children experience dance, games, athletics, gymnastics and lessons in fundamental movement and multi-skills. At KS2, pupils progressively begin to apply their fundamental skills in a range of different contexts and also have lessons in swimming which include water confidence, safety and stroke technique. Our children enjoy outdoor and adventurous activities through residentials and planned workshops to link with the PE Curriculum.

We are delighted to take part in competitions across Harlow and have many inter-trust competitions that take place in sports such as Football and Netball.  Competitive sports allow children to strengthen their muscles, bones, lungs and heart, which leads to improved balance, coordination flexibility and posture. We love watching our children excel in competitions, competitive sports are not just about winning though; taking part in sports teaches children many important skills such as respect, team work, social skills and confidence. 


Specialist music has been introduced to our pupils for a number of reasons. Pupils who have early musical training will develop the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning. Learning music promotes craftsmanship, and students learn to want to create good work instead of mediocre work. This desire can be applied to all subjects of study. As well as this, pupils who practice with musical instruments can improve their hand-eye coordination. Just like playing sports, children can develop motor skills when playing music. We have found that learning to play pieces of music on a new instrument can be a challenging, but achievable goal. Pupils who master even the smallest goal in music will be able to feel proud of their achievement.
