Development of the existing Gym facilities with the purchase of a Concept 2 ModelD PM rower and train staff to use. 1,3
Boys from the four units in school have access to the gym facilities and new rowing machine. Rowing machine has been used as part of the triathlon challenge where the boys complete a set distance on the treadmill, bikes and rowing machine. Settings on the new rowing machines encouraged boys to compete against other and set targets and challenges which motivated them to take part.

100% of all pupils have accessed the gym on at least two occasions over the last year with 77% of the boys accessing it weekly between September 2017 and March 2018. All the pupils have used the new rowing machine.

African Dance workshop aimed at Key stage 2 1,3,4
The African Dance workshop allowed the pupils regardless of their abilities the opportunity to experience the vibrant and diverse culture of Africa whilst learning some of the traditional dance moves. All the pupils in Key stage 2 took part in this fantastic workshop
6 new mountain bikes aimed at Key stage 2 pupils and training of 5 members of staff as mountain bike leaders 1,2,3,4 Since acquiring the mountain bikes all primary boys on the Rosedale unit - regardless of ability - have accessed the club and enjoyed time riding. In fact, it has swiftly become one of the most frequently requested activities on the unit.

Four of the boys recently completed a 34-mile round trip from Scarborough to Robins Hood Bay and the cycling proficiency sessions are underway. Besides the obvious health benefits, the boys are profiting from the social side of cycling, the necessity of assisting one another and encouraging their peers progress. For some of our boys with ADHD their minds, for a time, have the opportunity to become solely focused on one thing, undistracted by anything bar the act of mountain biking.

It is also evident that the confidence in their cycling ability is growing as they become more skilled, healthier and therefore able to ride further. It is as a direct result of the mountain biking club that several of our boys have recently started meeting up on a weekend to bike together.
