Sports Premium

Use of Pupil Premium Funding and Sports Premium 2019 - 20:

The Wherry School accepts responsibility for ‘socially disadvantaged’ pupils and the staff and trustees are committed to meeting their academic, pastoral, and social needs within a caring specialist school environment and to support the very unique and particular needs of an Autistic learner, with regards to social interaction, social communication, social imagination alongside sensory processing needs. This is an essential, integral part of the supportive ethos of the whole school community. As with every pupil on our roll, a child who is considered to be ‘socially disadvantaged’ is valued, respected and entitled to develop to his or her full potential, irrespective of need.

 

Our Aims for Physical Education Development 

Physical Education forms a very important part of the total education of the child who has a diagnosis of autism. In addition to the obvious benefits in terms of healthy activity and well-being, it is also important to consider the opportunities for personal and social development. These include:

  • Promoting the growth and development of each child
  • Helping to establish self-esteem through the development of physical confidence
  • Helping children learn to understand and accept their physical abilities and limitations
  • Encouraging personal qualities of perseverance, commitment, fairness and enthusiasm through physical activity
  • Developing body and self-awareness
  • Providing opportunities for joint attention and social interaction experiences
  • Developing an awareness of using equipment safely
