Happy Children Love Learning
At Pocklington CE Infant School our Mission statement is 'happy children loving learning' and we believe that physical education and outdoor activity have an important role in helping us fulfil our Mission. A wide range of PE is delivered to the pupils which is aimed to engage and encourage them to be active outside of the PE lesson. Lessons are taught by specialist sports coaches, classroom teachers or teaching assistants. Pupils have at least 2 PE lessons a week. The principles of PE and being active are built into as many of our lessons as possible, and staff have been trained to deliver active literacy and active numeracy. In EYFS pupils have continual access to the outdoors provision. We offer extra-curricular sports activities after school. Many of our pupils are involved in local sports clubs and attend swimming lessons. Pupils participate in inter-year sports day, and as part of our sports partnership participate in inter-school multi-skills competitions.
The Government had continued to provide additional funding to Primary schools in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport. Our Vision is that "All pupils leaving Primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport."
The PE and Sport Grant funding is ring-fenced. We are held accountable for how we use the funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. The files below set out how we spend our PE and Sports Grant. For the period 4/19 to 3/20 the school will receive £17,086 of PE and Sports Grant.
Schools can use their Primary PE and Sport Premium
At Pocklington Infants school, our children enjoy a variety of after school clubs, from Yoga to Street Dance. These clubs provide a safe, stimulating and fun environment, where the children can relax and play after the school day, socialise with their peers and develop friendships independently. The clubs are run by qualified sport coaches who also run some afternoon PE sessions, where our teachers are getting first hand, up to date training.
