PE Sports Grant 2017/18
Key stage 2 sends a class to West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled each half term.
Yoga sessions are held for many classes each Friday and continue to support relaxation, physical activity and mindfulness. Students that often struggle to focus in class find it particularly helpful.
Year 10 and sixth form have the opportunity of sailing at Snettisham Sailing Club in the Summer Term. The club has worked very hard over the years to ensure that all students have the opportunity to sail a Topper.
PE equipment has also been purchased including balls, trikes and mats.
Payment for member of staff to attend a two day higher level Rebound Therapy course. Many more students will be able to benefit from Rebound as we can now offer from Grades 1 – 8 which will see continued development and progression across all school years. Rebound Therapy can be accessed by all students in school.

Dance still continues to be very popular so the dance teacher has been contracted for a morning each week once more.
Yoga’s popularity with the students ensures a very packed Friday programme for the tutor.

What is Rebound Therapy?
Briefly, it is the phrase that describes the specific 'Eddy Anderson model'of exercise therapy which uses trampolines to provide opportunities for movement, therapeutic exercise and recreation for people across the whole spectrum of special needs.
Sometimes referred to as special needs trampolining, but that does not give a full picture. The Rebound Therapy training course teaches logical progressions of movement patterns designed to encourage the student to continually develop whilst at the same time experiencing healthy exercise and enjoyment.
