Read how we have spent the P.E. and Sport premium grant, and the impact this has had on our pupils’ attainment:
All schools receive PE and sports funding to be used on improving their provision of Physical Education with the freedom to choose how they do this.
In 2015-16 we received £8,218
We carefully planned how to make the best use of this funding and appointed Jane Hawkes to be our Sports Co-ordinator. Jane ensures that pupils have:
- High quality PE lessons
- Intra-school sports competitions at Level 1
- Inter-school sports activities at Level 2 and 3
- Access to Games for Life sports clubs
- Sports Leadership opportunities for pupils in KS3
- Rebound lessons
- Inclusion work with local primary schools
- Links with community clubs and sports coaching in school.
- Meeting speech and language therapy targets for positive opportunities to increase communication with others
- Seeing language modelled by peers
- Sharing in verbal and non-verbal communication strategies
- Through this work the school was awarded a School Games Bronze Award in July 2015.
- Sports Leadership skills develop confidence and self-esteem: lifelong transferable skills.
- The profile of PE is enhanced through intra activity (within school) and inter activity (between schools) at level 1, 2 and 3. An element of competition is introduced to all pupils.
- Community links with local clubs provides pathways to all sports. Coaching in schools provides high quality learning for a specific sport.
- Inclusion with other schools helps to foster positive relationships that can be developed in all areas of the curriculum.
- Links with other special schools enables best practice to be shared amongst staff and collaborative work to be developed.
