What Ofsted says about NET Academies Trust schools:
"The additional physical education and sport premium funding is spent well to provide pupils with a wide range of experiences and enhance their skills, and to support teachers' development in this area of the curriculum. As a result, physical education and sport are delivered well by staff and specialists. Pupils have access to a growing repertoire of sporting enrichment activities, including curling and archery. The school is working towards the Gold Sports Kite Mark after gaining the silver award." Latton Green Primary Academy
"The PE and sports premium funding is used mainly for specialist teaching and to increase the skills of all teachers. Pupils have increased opportunities to represent their school in competitive sport and to play for the Harlow hub. Lesson plans for PE have been written from the early years to Year 6 to provide progression. Over half the pupils now participate in sports clubs. The impact of sports funding can be seen in the increasing level of participation in clubs and competitions." Longwood Primary Academy
"The sport premium funding is also used well. Some of the funding is used for the school's subscription to the local sports partnership. This has increased pupils' participation in competitive sport. The funding has also enabled the school to increase the number and variety of sports clubs offered to pupils. The school has received awards for both its sporting achievements and its work towards encouraging healthy lifestyles." Abbotsweld Primary Academy

Leaders and governors take great pride in showing the successes that staff have had in taking on wider roles within the school or trust. Staff say they are very appreciative of the opportunities that leaders offer them." Ofsted 2017, Latton Green Primary Academy
