Ward Green Primary school is in an area of above average deprivation and BMBC NHS website statistics (2012) state that 15.5% of Worsbrough Ward population is not in good health compared to national levels of 9.0%. There is also a significantly higher incidence of long term limiting illness (27.7%) in comparison to UK figures (17.9%). We have over 30% of  Pupil premium children which is above National figures.


We welcome the Sports premium grant to enable high quality P.E lessons to take place along with extra curricular/holiday activities for children to take part in which will raise health awareness.
