2020 - 2021
The Sports Premium Funding is additional funding given to schools to ensure that all pupils receive high quality PE and out of hours school sport. At TCP, we believe the strategies should impact on the children so that they develop skills and confidence as well as having a range of opportunities to enjoy sport and most importantly to be active and healthy both now and in the future.
To find out more about what we spent the Sports Premium on last year and what the impact was, as well as what we are spending the funding on this year, please see the document below:
During the 2019-20 academic year, the school was in lockdown due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Despite this, we still ran clubs and participated in events up to March 2020 and gained the Virtual School Games Award for our efforts in keeping children physically active remotely.
Children at TCP have had the opportunity to participate in the following extra-curricular sporting clubs during the Autumn term.
Year 3 & 4 Indoor Athletics
Year 5 & 6 Basketball
Year 5 & 6 Yoga
Year 4 & 5 running
Year 3 & 4 Ballroom dancing
Year 1 & 2 Gymnastics
Year 1 & 2 Football
Year 4 & 5 running
Year 3 & 4 Gymnastics
TASA Sports Hall Athletics
18 pupils from Year 3 and 4 enjoyed participating in the TASA Sports Hall Athletics event at Burscough Sports Centre.
The children all took part in track and field events including javelin, standing long jump, triple jump and lots of relay races.
The children all showed great determination and were thrilled with their bronze medals.
School Games Award
To recognise our sporting achievements last year in gaining the School Games Gold award we were invited to a WLSP award presentation and lunch. Two Year 5 pupils went to receive our award. The award was presented to us by the current British Pole Vault Champion.
Sports for Champions UK
We welcomed Paralympian rugby player Ayaz Bhuta to school. All the children took part in a sponsored fitness circuit for 'Sports for Champions'. Then we enjoyed an inspirational assembly led by Ayaz, where he told us about how he became a GB rugby player, impressed us with some of his skills and shared with us his resilience.
Trip to Manchester City Womens FC
8 lucky Y6 girls and Mrs Marshall went to watch Manchester City Women play West Ham Women on Sunday 17th November. This was a trip organised by WLSP. They won 5 - 0 and we had a fantastic day. The children were able to get the opportunity to get a few autographs and selfies too.
TASA KS1 Sports Hall Athletics
16 Year 1 and 2 pupils enjoyed an evening of Sports Hall Athletics at Tarleton Academy as part of TASA. They enjoyed team relay events including a sprint and an obstacle course, threw javelins, did a standing long jump and a speed bounce. Lots of fun was had by all and it was a great opportunity for the children to experience Athletics.
Congratulations to our newly trained Sports Leaders. They will be organising and leading sporting activities every lunchtime, to help our children be as physically active as possible.
Year 3 and 4 pupils are enjoying the opportunity to learn Ballroom and Latin dancing as an extra curricular activity this half term. So far we have been learning steps for the Waltz and Cha Cha.
We were very lucky to have 2 award winning dancers come and perform for us. Zara and Eden, aged 10 are Latin American and Ballroom dancers. They also helped us with our steps and answered our questions.
At the end of our dance club we proudly danced for our parents and grandparents to show them the skills we have developed during this half term. We performed our Waltz and Cha Cha.
Pupils in Year 5 and 6 are enjoying learning basketball skills in our after school club led by Mr Tuffs from WLSP, helped by 2 Youngleaders from Tarleton Academy.
Schools are required to publish information about outcomes in swimming for Year 6. This is something that is paid for through the school's core budget and not Sport Premium Funding. The following table reflects that a high proportion of pupils leave TCP able to swim and this is significantly above national figures:
% Year 6 Pupils (51 pupils)
Swim Competently over 25m
Use a range of strokes effectively
Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Here are some of the things that the Sport Premium Funding helps us to achieve:
