Kirkleatham Hall School

"Unlocking Potential"

Primary PE and Sport Premium Report for 2014/15

The Primary PE and Sport Premium was launched by the government in April 2013 and is available for three years to July 2016. It is ring-fenced funding to be used by the school to improve the quality and breadth of our PE, sport and physical activity provision.


The national vision is for: “All pupils leaving primary school [to be] physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”


In academic year 2014/15, Kirkleatham Hall School received £9665.00.  The details below show how we spent the Premium and what impact it had on our pupils.


How the money was spent





Which pupils particularly benefited

        The difference we made to pupils



The impact on pupils’ achievement in curriculum PE


The continuation of the employment of a specialist teaching assistant with specific sports training to provide more sporting opportunities for all students in school. Following on from this a specialist teaching assistant was employed to provide more opportunities for pupils with complex physical needs in activities such as rebound therapy and hydrotherapy.







     All students



Pupils with profound and multiple difficulties (PMLD) and complex physical and sensory needs.


The Teaching Assistant has set up an after school rebound therapy club for some of our students who have more complex needs. We are also able to deliver more rebound therapy during curriculum time due to her expertise. The extra rebound therapy sessions benefitted the students in many ways such as improving their limb strength, muscle tone, stamina, communication, freedom of movement, relaxation as well as providing fun and enjoyment.


The impact on pupils’ participation and success in school sport (including competitive school sport)


The after-school Primary PE club continues to run. Two teaching assistants are employed to assist the school PE teacher with running of the club. 



KS2 pupils who didn’t take part in traditional team sports/ clubs
KS2 pupils take part in the weekly multi-sports after-school club. Students who attend this club represented the school at a district competition for the first time. 

The impact on pupils’ engagement in healthy, active lifestyles


Future plans are to stage a healthy living week. The week will focus on all aspects of a healthy lifestyle supported by coaches delivering multi sports sessions and students from Redcar College to deliver lessons on areas such as diet and personal hygiene.
Projected cost Approx £275




Whole School






Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the benefits of having a healthy lifestyle will be enhanced. 


As a result of the above, the impact on pupils’ engagement and achievement in school as a whole


Attitudes:  Students are now much more interested in sports. Pupils, including those who were not previously engaged in sporting activities now regularly participate in inter-school competitions. Students will have a greater understanding of what is a healthy lifestyle and what they need to do in order to lead a healthy life.


Behaviours: It has been observed how much better some of the pupils are able to concentrate in class as a result of being engaged in physical activities during break and lunchtimes. The structured activities at these times have in itself massively reduced the number of negative incidents that have been recorded during the student’s free time. 


Skills: Following the increase of the quantity and quality of rebound therapy sessions students are showing signs of improvement in areas such as improving their limb strength, muscle tone, stamina, communication, freedom of movement, relaxation as well as providing fun and enjoyment.
