Sports Premium Funding for 2018-2019

 

How are we planning to spend our PE and sport grant this year?

We will continue to provide a broad and balanced curriculum to motivate the children to lead healthy and active lives. This year Cuerden has received the allocated sports grant funding of £18,417.75 from the government. Both the children and staff at our school will benefit from specialist coaching with the impact of progress being supported by data on iTrack.

 

It is expected that schools will see an improvement in the following five indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
  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.

Swimming 

 

Swimming and water safety continues to be an important part of the PE curriculum at Cuerden Church School this year as it is another way of helping the children to lead healthy and active lifestyles. Schools have the responsibility to publish swimming data and we have used some of sports grant for this. 

 

This data shows how the children have met the National Curriculum expectations. By the end of Key Stage 2 children should be able to:

  • Swim 25 metres.
  • Use a variety of different strokes (e.g. breast stroke, back stroke, front crawl).
  • Be able to perform a safe self-rescue.

 

 

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:

  • Swim confidently over a distance of at least 25 metres.
  • Use a range of strokes.
  • Perform safe, self-rescue in different water situations.

 

The children will be assessed in the water at different stages throughout the year and data will also be reviewed and reported on our website. 

 

Of the current Year 6 cohort 75% can swim competently over a distance of at least 25 metres, 75% of children can use a range of strokes and 95.83% can perform a safe self-rescue.

 

Further improvement and development: 

We are looking to provide Year 5 children who do not meet the National Curriculum standards with booster sessions in the Summer Term.

Swimming

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:

  • Swim 25 metres
  • Use a variety of different strokes (breast stroke, back stroke, front crawl)
  • Be able to perform a safe self-rescue

 

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:

  • Swim confidently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes
  • Perform safe, self-rescue in different water situations

 

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.
