Ralph Sadleir School has been in receipt of additional government funding specified as PE and Sport Premium since its introduction in September 2013. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and, Media and Sport for Key Stage 2 pupils; at Ralph Sadleir School this is Year 5 and Year 6 pupils only.
PE and Sports Premium is used to further promote participation levels in healthy activities by extending and augmenting the range of sports clubs which take place outside of school hours. The school already ensures that all pupils have access to an outstanding physical education. This is achieved by using specialist staff including a designated physical education teacher and sports coaches.
Pupils have the opportunity to take part in enjoyable and challenging activities as well as providing opportunities for pupils to participate in competitive sport at District, County and Regional levels. This contributes to their physical development, social interaction with other pupils whilst also having a significant impact on pupil’s well-being, general health and enjoyment of school. Pupils with individual needs have activities to develop stamina and physical control embedded throughout the school day. Pupils with physical impairment are given activities suitable for their abilities that where possible allows them to participate in lessons with their peers. Those who are most able have represented the school in a variety of events, including football, rugby, speed stacking, netball, table tennis, cross country, athletics, basketball, rounders and Kwik cricket.
