Nettleham Infant Schools Vision for Sport


Our School believes that ALL pupils should be given the opportunity to become physically literate and with the opportunity to begin to develop the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation and enjoyment in physical activity and sport.

Nettleham infant school aims to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport against 5 key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity promoting active healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school and being used in a truly cross curricular manner as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport

Wake Up Shake Up


Since the 2016 the school have introduced  'Wake up, Shake up' sessions during the day.  We have  noted that children are starting these sessions more enthusiastically than they had approached the previous 'Activate' sessions. It has been noted that children who had previously not taken part in morning activities are now happy to join in with their peers. 


Staff have  commented on higher levels of concentration and children who are more ready to listen and learn after participating in a session. We are working on collecting a wide range of resources to enhance this using song from films and popular culture that the children are aware of.
