Our vision is to ensure all pupils are able to participate in a PE curriculum that is rich with experience and opportunity both in school and off site and that pupils will develop a life-long love of physical activity.

Over 50% of our pupils have an Autism Spectrum Condition. Many more pupils have sensory difficulties and anxieties that often present barriers to engagement with physical activity and general learning. We have carefully directed our primary PE funding to assist young pupils to overcome barriers in order to make sustained personal improvement and access sport and the wider curriculum. We achieve this through deploying a well trained full time member of staff called the Activities Coordinator to plan and deliver sensory circuits for both individuals and smaller groups within our primary phase. The Activities Coordinator also promotes positive play routines during morning and lunchtime breaks on the primary play grounds. Girls are a minority group in our school and the Activities Coordinator leads a weekly Girls Group promoting friendship through physical activity. The Activities Coordinator assists with off-site swimming. This ensures every child from Years 1 – 6 has the opportunity to swim during the school year.










Sensory Circuit interventions are tracked through our Provision Plan. Clear targets are set for pupils engaging in Sensory Circuits which are reviewed termly (7 weeks). Impact of Sensory Circuits and other Activities Coordinator interventions are measured through SLEUTH, pupil behaviour data, Boxall and Pupil Asset progression data.
