PE and Sports Premium

PE at Hingham Primary School 

The National Curriculum for Physical Education aims to ensure that all pupils:

- develop competence in order to compete in a broad range of sports and activities

- are physically active for sustained periods of time

- lead healthy, active lives.


Linked to our vision to Nurture, Learn, Achieve, our aims for Physical Education are:

Nurture – We regularly encourage children to be healthy and active. This helps all children practise teamwork in school which they can then use in the communities they are part of.

Learn – We broaden our children’s experiences of physical activity with a broad and varied PE curriculum. This enjoyment of PE promotes a lifelong love of physical activity in children and staff. We offer staff Continuous Professional Development training in PE to ensure high quality provision.

Achieve – We provide intra-school and inter-school competition through our School Sports Partnership. We encourage children to record their personal bests and attempt challenges. This helps us achieve improved attitudes to health and regular purposeful activity. We first focus on skill development in each sport and then allow children to hone those skills by competing in competitive matches.

What is the 'PE and Sports Premium'?

The Government provides annual 'PE and Sports Premium' funding for all schools. We must spend the funding to  encourage, develop and improve healthy, active lifestyles and sporting activities offered to all of our children at Hingham Primary School. The funding must be used to pay for additional, purposeful and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. 

PE Policy - Hingham Primary School

What is the future of PE at Hingham Primary School?

We are constantly challenging ourselves to improve our provision, develop engagement and provide an increasing variety of sporting events. There is a strong PE culture across the whole school, amongst staff, children and parents alike. In the future, we want to maintain and expand this positive culture. 

We are planning to:

  • Host a whole school 'Zumbathon'
  • Purchase an iPad for children to self assess and peer assess by recording video/images of their techniques in order to provide a critique for improvement


In PE, we regularly seek the opinion of parents and staff in order to improve our provision and our children's Physical Education. We do this through the questionnaires. We also regularly monitor the safety and condition of our PE equipment.

'Boogie Bounce' Trampolining sessions for EYFS, KS1 and KS2

The aim of the 'Boogie Bounce Schools' lessons to empower children with love and passion for physical activity which will allow them to take responsibility for their health and fitness from childhood into adulthood. The sessions provide a fun, exciting form of exercise which fosters a non-competitive, supportive and inclusive environment which is designed to motivate and encourage all students to participate – especially those who usually dislike classic P.E activities.
