PE and Sports Premium Statement
At Humberstone Infant Academy PE and competitive sport plays a key role in the education and development of our children.
Pupils moving onto the next stage in their education, should be physically literate and have the knowledge, understanding, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
High quality PE lessons and opportunities for competitive sport develop children’s cooperation, determination and perseverance. Targeted provision through a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities is put in place for children to develop fine and gross motor skills as appropriate to their age and stage in school.
The school places a high value on competitive sport and children have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of individual and team intra and inter-school competitions including key stage 1 sports festivals, football, gymnastics and balanceability.
A wide range of after school clubs are provided for children to develop their skills in activities such as dance, multi sports, gymnastics, hockey, yoga, football, basketball and running.
Healthy living is promoted through the school Wellbeing and PSHE curriculum and through visits from experts within the community. Assemblies and Projects are undertaken that focus entirely on healthy choices and developing an understanding of the impact unhealthy choices have on our bodies and minds. For example a year 2 project where activity cards are being created for use across the Trust to encourage children to be more actively engaged in physical activities at lunchtime.
Family days out take place on Saturdays throughout the year and encourage physical exercise and fun (ice skating, roller skating, games at Hunstanton beach etc). This year we are privileged to be working alongside Rising Stars on a lunchtime project to raise levels of physical activity amongst our least active children.
