Sports Premium

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 and a weekly PE lesson.  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. 

The Government continued to provide additional funding to Primary schools in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and Sport. Our 

Our PE vision is that “All pupils leaving Pocklington Infants are 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. Schools can use the PE and Sports Premium funding to:

  • To provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sports more effectively.  To hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • Introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up
    sports and physical activities
  • Support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running
    or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • Enter or run more sports competitions
  • Partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sports and physical
    activity within the school
  • Provide additional swimming provisions targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming
    requirements of the national curriculum
  • Embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school,
    active playgrounds and active teaching  

At Pocklington Infants School, our children enjoy a variety of after-school clubs. 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 sports coaches.
