Sports Premium

The Government provide an annual ‘Sports Premium’ to schools to ensure that all pupils are accessing a full and effective physical education. At Huntingdon Academy, we work to ensure this funding is spent effectively across the Academy to the benefit of all pupils. This includes funding specialist sports coaches, attendance at competitive sports events, extra-curricular activities and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles for all pupils. We will ensure that sport and P.E. provision addresses the needs of all pupils, including those who belong to disadvantaged, vulnerable and gifted groups.

Sports Premium Policy

All sports provision will aim to increase attainment, inclusive participation, improve confidence, develop competitive strategies and hone techniques / skills; whilst encouraging a life-long love of sport, together with an understanding of the health benefits participation in sports activities brings.

Sport Premium Funding will enable Huntingdon to fulfil the following aims:

  • to ensure that we can promote and support the importance of a healthy lifestyle and place particular emphasis on the wellbeing of our pupils
  • to ensure that pupils will learn how sport and activity impacts positively on all aspects of their lives and on that of the school;
  • to improve the physical education experience for all children in our school;
  • to support the school in increasing physical activity opportunities for our children;
  • to enable our children to enjoy a range of school sport outside of the curriculum
  • to ensure access for all children to high quality physical education lessons to develop fitness, stamina, health and well-being;
  • to ensure the development of school sport is linked to wider agendas

For P.E. every child is provided with a school P.E. kit consisting of blue shorts and a burgundy short sleeved t-shirt. When children are working in the hall they are usually expected to work bare foot. Your child may want to bring an extra sweatshirt or track suit for outdoor games in cold weather. Footwear should be trainers or plimsolls.

Additional expenditure on P.E.

The school runs many sports clubs after school throughout the year for all age groups. There are two sports apprentices who support in P.E. lessons and run games activities throughout the breaks and lunchtimes as well as also running sports clubs after school.
