Sports Premium Funding for 2017-2018
How are we planning to spend our PE and sport grant?
We believe in providing children with a broad and balanced PE curriculum, which will motivate children to lead healthy lifestyles. From this government this year our school has received the allocated sports grant funding of £14,955. The children and staff at Cuerden will benefit from specialist coaching. An impact on progress will be supported by our PE assessment tracker.
From September 2017 to July 2018 the sports grant has been spent upon:
1. Buying into the South Ribble Sports Partnership School’s Coaching Programme:
2. After School Clubs run by South Ribble Sports Partnership:
IMPACT: The routine that the children learnt at this After School Club was incorporated into the Infant Nativity production to showcase their achievements to families and the whole school.
IMPACT: 35% (39 out of 112 pupils in Years 1, 2, 3 and 4) participated in an After School sports club in the Autumn Term.
IMPACT: 75% (33 out of 44 Year 5 and Year 6 pupils) participated in After School sports clubs in the Spring Term.
3. South Ribble Sports Team will also run Bikeability with Year 6 which is free of charge for all schools. This cycling proficiency will give the children the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on roads.
4. The whole school will also participate in the Dance from the Heart event in the Summer Term. Staff and children will be involved in a half-day leadership course to support the rest of the school in learning the dance routine. The whole school will then perform the routine in an exciting roadshow. The cost of this is £70.
The cost of this coaching support and the after school clubs is: £3395
5. Buying into the Premier League Primary Stars and Community Education Trust programme run by Preston North End Football Club.
This includes coaching support for half a day for one academic year inclusive of CPD and a lunchtime club for three half terms. Throughout the year each class will have two slots to work with a trained coach to learn basic skills such as throwing and catching to enable them to play a range of sports for example netball and tennis. The cost of this is £3000.
IMPACT: During the Spring Term children from all year groups had the opportunity to participate in physical activities and games with Chris from PNE in a Lunchtime Club. The school football team also worked with Chris to rehearse their skills for an local schools tournament.
6. The school will also participate in Football and High 5 Netball coaching sessions, competitive events and tournaments with other local schools. The cost of this is £300.
Other uses of the sports funding:
IMPACT: In the Autumn Term Year 6 pupils updated their Change 4 Life training so that they can continue to work alongside welfare staff to provide active, healthy lunchtime games. We were also provided with a new equipment kit. The training and equipment was delivered free of charge by Kevin Loughran.
Overall Total so far: £8,131.05
Impact of the sports funding:
The remaining expenditure is to be spent in the Spring and Summer Terms of 2018. The impact of this will be reviewed and updated in the Summer Term.

Swimming and water safety is an important part of the PE curriculum at Cuerden Church School as it is another way of helping the children to lead healthy and active lifestyles. Schools now have the responsibility of publishing swimming data. This data should show how the children have met the National Curriculum expectations in Key Stage 2. By the end of Year 6 children should be able to:
Current swimming provision
Throughout the academic year pupils in Year 4 attend weekly swimming lessons at the local leisure centre. During their weekly sessions the children are grouped according to their ability and are taught to:
Of the current Year 4 cohort at least 64.29% of children should be able to swim the distance of 25 metres by the end of the school year. This data will be reviewed again in the Summer Term once the children have been re-assessed in the water.
Further improvement and development
With the increase of the PE premium we are looking to provide Year 5 children who do not meet the National Curriculum standards with regular booster sessions alongside Year 4 from September.
