Danesholme Infant Academy

Be a Sports Player at DIA


Physical Education Intent

At Danesholme Infant Academy we develop pupils' physical literacy and competitive values in a way that supports their health and fitness. This is achieved by following the EYFS framework and National Curriculum, whilst utilising inclusive specialist schemes of learning (BOING).  

Pupils will engage in both competitive and cooperative physical activities in a range of challenging situations, from in school lessons to external competitions. Children will have access to extra-curricular opportunities to further develop skills and passions for sport and exercise with the support of Sport Premium funding. On top of this, P.E at DIA contributes to the cultural capital of its pupils through a range of diverse cultural sporting experiences both indoors and using our outdoor environment. The use of skills builder and opportunities to explore jobs in sport are integrated within our P.E curriculum. 

Our intention is to improve the physical and mental well-being of our pupils by delivering passionate focused P.E lessons, alongside extra-curricular activities, active lunch time opportunities and regular in-class movement breaks - inspiring a life-long love for sport, exercise and a healthy lifestyle. 

How this links to whole school intent: 

  • Encourage explorative learners 

  • Independent decision makers 

  • Problem solvers 

  • Enjoying child led-learning
