Glasshoughton Infant Academy
Sports Premium Funding 2021/22
Glasshoughton Infant Academy contributes to PE (Physical Education) in a vast range of ways. At Glasshoughton Infant Academy, we recognise the contribution of PE to the physical health, mental health and well-being of the children especially in response to Covid-19 and school closures. We know that children will have faced different experiences during closure including lack of movement competence, anxiety, bereavement, social isolation, lack of confidence and lack of activity. Physical education is paramount in helping children continue to reintegrate back into school life and improving their overall health and well-being. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through deploying expert infant staff to deliver high quality physical education sessions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions. At Glasshoughton Infant Academy we are committed to ensure that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by expert and enthusiastic teachers. We ensure our staffs PE subject knowledge is accurate and strong so that all children are supported through clear differentiation at all levels.
We run a Sports and Healthy Eating Week every year which includes taking part in competitive races and learning how and why we must keep our selves fit and healthy. This is linked to our Science and PSHCE curriculum to ensure children are seeing the importance of keeping fit and healthy both on their body and mind, not just because they enjoy PE. Every year children take part in a sponsored walk around the school grounds to raise money towards school funds.
