Primary Sports Premium

As a Specialist Sports College, we pride ourselves on the quality of our PE and School Sport provision. All of our pupils receive high quality PE following updated medium term plans and have access to a variety of sporting opportunities throughout their school lives.

Many of our secondary and FE students are involved in competitive events, and we attend inter school competitions regularly. We offer a range of sporting lunchtime clubs, delivered on each day of the week and sometimes have expert coaches deliver sessions in school. Over 60% of our pupils’ access regular extra-curricular sport.

We are grateful to receive Primary Sport Premium funding to support our work in PE and Sport. This academic year we have used this funding to support the following:

Inclusion opportunities: We have used some of our funding to enable all of our primary classes to experience a sporting trip outside of school. Most classes attended Jump warehouse and some went ten-pin bowling. All trips were very successful and we hope to continue this next academic year.

Special School Competitions and events: We have used Sport Premium money to ensure our primary and secondary pupils are given every opportunity to compete and experience sporting events alongside their peers from other Norfolk Special Schools. These sporting events have included, Boccia, Football, Athletics, Multi skills, Table Cricket as well as PE events specifically for PMLD and ASD pupils.

Playground equipment: We supported the purchase of resources to be used on the playground to help keep our primary aged pupils active throughout the day, including those with physical disabilities. These included bikes, tricycles, helmets, scooters, gym equipment and various bats and balls.

PE and swimming equipment: We continue to keep our PE and swimming resources up to date, to ensure pupils are given continual new experiences.

Fitness: We have invested in new fitness equipment to keep our fitness suite up to date and accessible for all our pupils.

We were delighted to see our hard work recognised in our most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2017):

“Physical education (PE) is a strength of the school. The PE leader ensures that all pupils are active during the school day. There are many opportunities to take part in sporting activities in school time, at after-school clubs and in local sporting events. Last year, 101 out of the 140 pupils took part in at least one local event. The PE and sport premium is used highly effectively to improve teachers’ expertise and also to provide specialist equipment so that as many pupils as possible can take part and improve their physical health and well-being.”
