PE and Sport
At Driffield CE Infant School our vision 'Learning to let your light shine', applies to all areas of the curriculum and we believe that physical education and outdoor activity has an important role in helping children to 'flourish and excel in their aspirations. In addition 'Outdoor Learning' is one of our two curriculum drivers, so is an essential thread that runs through everything we do.
A wide range of PE is delivered to the pupils which to engage and inspire them. Lessons are taught by our Sports Coaches and Class Teachers. The principles of PE and being active are built into as many of our lessons as possible including literacy and numeracy. All staff have been trained in delivering active literacy and maths lessons.
In Foundation Stage the children have continual access to the outdoors where they can engage with both large and small apparatus.
We have an extensive extra-curricular programme which includes both after- school and lunchtime clubs. We hold a weekly football club and a range of other sports throughout the year Many of our children compete for local sports teams including football, rugby and gymnastics.
All children participate in both an inter-year sports day and a whole school Sports Day every year. As members of the Driffield Sports Partnership, the children take part in inter-school multi-skills competitions, football tournaments and cross-country events. Children in KS1 compete as sports teams against each other, earning points for their team for effort and excellence in their PE lessons.
