P.E. and Sports Premium Funding

Primary P.E. Funding Information:

The Government has provided significant funding since 2013/14 to all schools with Primary aged children, to extend PE and Sport provision, beyond the expected PE curriculum. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Information about how this grant will be used to improve the quality and provision of sports within our school can be found in the documents below.

Further Information:

KS2 pupils now have the opportunity to take part in competitions with other SEND schools in the county, and take part in healthy, active lifestyles with trips and visits to local attractions and Outdoor Learning environments/venues. These have included 'Go Ape' at High Lodge in Thetford, Banham Zoo, Bewilderwood and High Altitude trampoline park, among many. We have also been able to provide holiday/after school sessions (Harford breaks) to allow students opportunities to try other activities, and pursue healthy, active lifestyles.

At Harford Manor in addition to our curricular P.E., we also offer students the opportunity to take part in competitions, festivals and experience days with other Complex Needs Schools at a variety of external venues throughout the year. We also have input from professional coaches in cricket and tennis. These events are supported by the Primary School Sports Funding we receive.

Key Stage 2 - Swimming Attainment

Due to the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, we were unable to access pools in the community and training for our staff to safely teach swimming.
During this time however we have continued to use the hydrotherapy pool and all our year 6 pupils (among others) practiced their safety skills which include but are not limited to;
  • Getting into and out of the pool safely  
  • Learning how to behave safely in a pool area 
  • Blowing bubbles in the water
  • Putting their face in the water
  • Using floatation tools to practice moving in the water 
  • Picking objects up from the bottom of the pool
  • Following instructions

We aim for all our pupils in Key Stage 2 and above to access larger pools on an annual basis over a term (at least) to develop their swimming skills and water safety, enabling us to provide more accurate assessment data in this area from the end of the 2022/23 academic year.
