Sports and PE Funding

Physical Education develops a child’s knowledge, skill and understanding, enabling them to perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. Our intent at Lark Hall Infant and Nursery Academy is to provide children with a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle, so that they can make informed choices about physical activities throughout their lives. Sports Premium is used to fund additional and sustainable improvements; it is reviewed continuously to offer the best opportunities to children at Lark Hall.    We strive to provide children with a vast range of sporting opportunities through: lessons, after school clubs and intra and inter-school competitions.  At Lark Hall, we endeavour to find sports inclusive to all and create a love of physical education for life.

At Lark Hall, we have a range of sporting opportunities for children to take part in. Sports day, Mini-Olympics and other school events encourage children to be active. A range of competitive events and non-competitive events are also available for children. These opportunities begin in EYFS where physical development is a prime area of learning. Giving children a range of activities at such a young age fosters not only their love of sport but also allows them to develop crucial fine motor skills. Finding a sport or activity children love is our aspiration at Lark Hall. By doing this, it will make children ready for a physically active lifestyle when they come to leave whilst encouraging and teaching respect for others within in a safe environment.
