What is Sports premium

Schools receive additional funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport

This means that we have to use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - aim is all students engage in at least 30 min activity each day
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

The school reports on how it expects to use the Sports premium funds and again at the end of the financial year to say how the money has been used and it's impact. From April 2018 schools also have to report on swimming outcomes for pupils at the end of Year Six.

Trikes and Bikes

Accessible bikes benefit pupils by developing their gross motor skills, develop their awareness of space and negotiating around obstacles, exercise, and social opportunities to share, take turns and have fun together. For some of our children it has promoted independent movement and a chance to access an activity that most typically developing children would have the chance to do. Riding a bike/tricycle provides both fun and fitness, and is a therapeutic activity that allows children to exercise their lower extremities. As the muscles move through cycling motions, they are flexed, extended and stretched. The bikes required specialist trunk and head support for some of our pupils.

Jabedao

https://www.jabadao.org/jabadao-special-needs

Direct, nonverbal, playful ways to support children and young people with learning disabilities, communication and interaction difficulties and complex additional needs. This year we have purchased a yearlong package of training and support through the Special School’s Sports Partnership. This has enabled staff to understand the concept of Developmental Movement Play better, in order to provide personalised programmes to pupils at the earliest stages of physical development. Pupils have benefited from personalised programmes and one-to-one expert support during an expert launch day.

Pendragon

http://www.pendragon-ct.org/about-pendragon/

Sensory room for special needs. Funds provided a bus, staffing support and a visit at Christmas for all the Primary pupils. This is the most accessible setting in the locality for whole classes to participate in and enabled the children to move in a stimulating environment with tracking hoist, soft floors, slides, interactive lights and vibrating bed.

Tracking hoist and mobile hoist

A tracking hoist has enabled pupils to move more freely around the classroom with staff still able to move and re position them safely from wherever they end up. Pupil movement programmes (MOVE/physio/Jabadao/sensory) is promoted and encouraged by allowing pupils to move more freely around the classroom space (either crawling, bottom shuffling etc.) There have been enormous developmental benefits from having the opportunity for free movement on the floor, which in turn promotes physical and cognitive development. The hoist also facilitates better use of different areas in the class.

Further to this, mobile hoists promote access to physical opportunities around the school and playground. Opportunities for free floor movement in the hall, Community Room etc as part of our Developmental Movement Play programme.

Swimming Bagel

The swimming bagel is a float cushion that fully supports the head and chest whilst a pupil is lying on their back in the water. It prevents the pupil’s head from being immersed in the water and the buoyancy acts on the chest, not on the head and neck. The trunk and limbs are able to float freely. It is fully adjustable to fit all pupils and has soft, comfortable body straps. The swimming bagel makes the pupils feel secure and supported thus helps develop their confidence in the water. It facilitates a level of independence of movement for our students with physical difficulties whilst keeping them safe.

Pupil B

 

B has not been swimming since October 2017 due to complications that arose following operations on her hips in early November 2017. She was absent from school following an infection after the operation and still has a small dressing on the site of one of the operations preventing her from swimming. Up until this point pupil B has taken part in weekly swimming sessions

When she returns to swimming the focus would be to regain confidence in the water.

Learning

Water confidence with help - B will explore the water in a range of different positions (on back, on tummy, floor sitting in bubble area) to develop confidence in the water with support from two members of staff

Pupil D

Pupil D demonstrates good water confidence and can submerge herself fully in the water and control her breathing. She can travel five metres on her front and back without aids and is working towards swimming 10 metres. She can push and glide from the wall and float both on her front and on her back. She is comfortable swimming under water and is working on swimming with her head above the water and paying more attention to where others are around her. Pupil D is able to retrieve an item from the bottom of the pool in both the shallow and deep ends.

Pupil E

Pupil E displays excellent confidence in the water. He can submerge himself fully and is able to retrieve items from the bottom of the pool in both the shallow and deep ends. He is also able to float on both his front and his back. Pupil E can move through the water unaided for 5m, and up to 10m with prompting. He is now focusing on developing his formal swimming strokes, such as breast stroke and front crawl. He is also working on controlling his breathing.
