At Huntingdon Academy, we promote and support the importance of a healthy lifestyle and place a particular emphasis on the well-being of our pupils. Our curriculum gives pupils the opportunity to develop an understanding of the positive impact of physical activity upon their lives. We support and inspire all of our pupils to lead a healthy lifestyle.
We aim to inspire all of our pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport, consequently all pupils at Huntingdon Academy have the opportunity to compete in a wide range of sporting competitions. We believe that opportunities to compete in sport build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect. Furthermore, sporting experiences also support our pupils to develop their communication, collaboration, thinking and listening skills. We strive to ensure that the subject specific vocabulary and terminology required within Physical Education runs through all lessons and believe that this is a key element in developing children’s understanding of their bodies and health.
At Huntingdon Academy we celebrate all sporting achievements. Every term the sports ambassadors lead a sports achievement assembly. This provides us with the opportunity to celebrate all the sporting success our pupils have achieved in that term.
