Schools with Primary aged pupils receive the PE and Sport Premium. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and Sport activities they offer their pupils but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.
Here at Beacon Hill we receive this additional funding and have employed a specialist PE teacher and schools sport co ordinator with over 36 years experience in special schools to support our PE and Sport.
* To advise and support in the planning, delivery and assessment of Physical Education.
* To provide information and links to staff training opportunities in PE and specialist activities.

* Work closely with regional disability sports organisations and other sport providers to support our pupils to experience a variety of competitive sports events.
