Research shows a clear link between the health and wellbeing of students and their educational outcomes and this is at the forefront of our PE offer.
At Stalyhill Infant School we are committed to providing our pupils with at least 2 hours of physical activity each week. All pupils are involved in our physical education program during curriculum time, which includes a variety of activities designed to challenge and inspire the children.

As well as these curriculum activities, we provide every child with the opportunity to take part in enrichment clubs at lunch times covering a range of sports and physical activities.
PE and Sport Premium overview
In April 2015, the Government announced new funding for Physical Education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and range of sport in schools. (Sport premium funding).
In September 2017 Sports Premium grant funding doubled to £16000 annual lump sum plus £10 per head.
In accordance with the DFE conditions of grant, at Stalyhill Infant School we use the PE and sport premium to:
- develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Specifically we use this funding to support, challenge and inspire pupils and staff against the following key indicators as recommended by the DfE: (March 2021)
Key indicator 1; Increase the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
Key indicator 2; Raise the profile of PE and sport across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement.
Key indicator 3; Increase confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
Key indicator 4; Offer a broader experience of a range of sports and activities to all pupils.
Key indicator 5; Increase participation in competitive sport.
