Hamilton School Policy for Sport Premium

Access to sport and physical activity can be very challenging for our students and families.  There is a lot of evidence about the importance of exercise for students with autism in terms of lowering stress levels and hence improving learning.  We are aiming to improve fitness levels, increase participation rates and also help to develop hobbies and activities that can be developed outside of the home and involve other family members

It is not as simple as saying that one intervention will always directly link to one outcome and in order to improve things many different interventions come together.  The funding is proving to be invaluable and having a positive impact on our students in a number of ways.
