Turney pupils have an Autistic Spectrum Condition and associated learning needs. Most of our pupils are non-verbal and have significant speech, language and communication needs.
At Turney School we use the PE & Sports Premium to work in a multi-disciplinary approach with other professionals to support pupils individual needs.
Pupils to be physically active and healthy
Encourage team work and social interaction
To build confidence
Develop fine and gross motor skills.
We achieve this through:
Positive play £600 (training and equipment)
Swimming £6,000 (including transport, and instructor)
PE lessons, including rebound therapy, dance, gymnastics, team sports and athletics. £,1,675 (including yoga sessions, instructor time and transport with TA support to participate in local games and tournaments)
The impact of the PE and Sports Premium for 2015-2016 was:
All pupils have had weekly swimming lessons.
Improved communication and social interaction.
Rebound therapy has developed special awareness and self-confidence.
