Sports Premium Funding 2019/20

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. 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. We also acknowledge that extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on children as a whole child.

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 activity sessions, entering into more competitive sports competitions 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.

Teachers provide after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports. Glasshoughton Infant Academy takes part in a range of inter school competitions with other local primary schools within the academy trust and pyramid. We also 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, not just because they enjoy PE. Every year parents are invited to take part in a sponsored walk around the school grounds with their child to raise money towards school funds.
