The Government have allocated funding to each school to ensure that the level of Physical Education and Sports is raised within each school. This document explains how the funding allocation has been spent at St. Cuthbert's.
(i) Created a partnership with a local school game organiser in order to create more opportunities for our children to compete in competitions.
(ii) Employed a company and coaches to run a number of Sports after-school clubs including Football, Dance and Gym.
(iii) Employ a sports coach to help children develop their gross motor skills - 1 session a week.
(iv) Invested in lunchtime and playtime sports equipment to ensure that children have the access to fitness on the playground.
(v) Invested in a range of P.E. equipment to support teaching and learning.
(vi) Trained some our pupils to be play leads for our younger pupils in school.
For the academic Year 2018/2019, St Cuthbert's will be using the Sports Premium funding to take part in the Central sports partnership programme (tier 3), with the aim of creating sustainable and effective Sports provision within the school. We will measure the impact against 5 key areas. They are:
1.The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles;
2.The profile of PE and Sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement;
3.Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport;
4.Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
5.Increased participation in competitive sport.
If you have any suggestions to help us further our Sports provision please contact the school.
