IMPACT

This money has helped increase participation in healthy, active lifestyles, and educated KS2 students as to the benefits of participation in Sport and Outdoor activities. It has helped educate pupils as to where their healthy food comes from, and how animal care can provide a therapeutic and rewarding environment. Pupils collect eggs, pick fruit, and harvest vegetables, to use in their cooking lessons.

KS2 pupils now have the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular Inter-House competition, and take part in competition with other SEND schools in the County. Every Student in Key Stage 3 represented the school in an extra-curricular competition with/against pupils from other SEND schools in Norfolk.

Training from Outdoor Learning CPD has been disseminated to Key Stage staff and Pupils in Years 3-6 regularly take part in LOTC activities. Outdoor classroom areas have been developed in the woodland, and around the pond area, to enable students to learn in different environments. All Key Stage 2 classes have their own ‘areas’ within the allotment area in which to plant, cultivate and harvest herbs and vegetables. KS2 students will continue this education into KS3 as Outdoor Learning has been adopted into the curriculum for Years 7-9.

PE staff have participated in the delivery of activities from external providers, in order to up-skill and enable these activities to continue in the future.

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by all schools based on the number of pupils from disadvantaged families. The Government is clear that this funding is intended to support these pupils by raising their achievements and ensure they have the same access to opportunities as other pupils. It is the schools decision as to how this money is best spent.

It is allocated to schools based on the number of children who come from low-income families which is defined as those who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals. This means pupils who are entitled and have registered for free school meals however, do not necessarily take the meal are also eligible.

It also includes pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years

  • children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months

When introduced in April 2011, the level of the premium in 2011-12 was £488 per pupil. It is was £600 per pupil for 2012-13 and increased to £900 per pupil for 2013-14.

So far, for this year we have spent money on Tennis Coaching, transport to sports events, trampettes and exercise balls for each tutor group, and martial arts taster sessions.

The object of the Charity is to raise funds to increase opportunities and enhance the education of the pupils at Sidestrand Hall School, either individually or as a group.  It is not for day to day running expenses. Monies raised last year was used to purchase a new playground,  the Library bus, various workshops, theatre groups,  and other smaller projects and activities throughout the school.

The Strands Charity Shop, in Cromer, opened in January 2013 and is a major fundraising stream for The Strands Charity. It also provides pupils with a valuable resource and using the shop is incorporated into the curriculum for Independent Living, Literacy, Numeracy and other aspects of pupil learning.  We currently have 8 volunteers who work at the shop, as well as Sidestrand staff who dedicate time to making it a success.

Donations for items to be sold can be taken directly to the shop or sent into the school.
