Sports Premium

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 healthy.


Here are some of the things that the Sport Premium Funding helps us to achieve:




TASA Dengineers Year 3 and 4

Congratulations to our team of Year 3 and 4 pupils who enjoyed a fantastic morning of orienteering. They had to work together to collect resources and build a shelter. Their design needed to be waterproof and large enough to fit everyone in (even if it was a squash and a squeeze). They were praised for their excellent team work and won the award for the most creative shelter design. 

Well done Team TCP!


Sports Day

All children had lots of fun and participated in lots of different races. KS2 raced in the morning competing in events such as sprint, relay, long distance and javelin.
Congratulations to Team Kenny who were the winners for KS2.
Reception and KS1 enjoyed an afternoon of fun in the sun, with races including skipping, running, sack race, egg and spoon and speedy dressing on a bouncy hopper. 

TASA Dengineers

8 pupils from Year 6 took part in the TASA Dengineers Event at Tarleton Academy. The task was to build a den using natural material which included using maps and gaining extra material to help with the build. The group was awarded "Best Team Work" and "Best Aesthetics". 

Year 1 children continue to go swimming once a week, all children are making fantastic progress. 

To provide our children with a broader experience of a range of sports and activities we participated in the TASA Muddy Woody Cross Country. 

Up and coming events and activities to look forward to in the Summer term include Girl's Football and Kwik Cricket clubs with friendly matches and tournaments. 'TASA Dengineers' for KS2, an orienteering challenge which requires children to collect resources required to build a shelter. Media Training and Mini Whistler training for UKS2 pupils provided by our partnership with WLSSP. A rounder's after school club, Sports day, Friends of TCP events and lots more.




Children in Year 6 are having the opportunity to learn Yoga. We are hoping to equip our children with strategies to help them to relax fully and feel calmer in difficult or stressful situations. 


During the Spring term we have introduced the Daily Mile at TCP to help get us more physically active and work towards us achieving our 30 minutes of vigorous daily exercise. It is lots of fun, we chat to our friends, get fresh air, have a break from afternoon lessons and get fit! All the adults join in too!

To further engage all pupils in regular physical activity we have introduced daily sessions of 'Go Noodle' and 'BBC Supermovers'. We also use this to raise the profile of Sport within school and as a strategy to support brain function and progress across the curriculum. 


We enjoyed a great day of intra school competition in aid of Sport Relief where we competed in our house teams. All children from Tiny Treasures to Year 6 took part. 


We have members of Year 6 who have volunteered to be lunchtime Play leaders. They encourage, support and help younger children to join in with activities and sports. At lunchtimes, with the support of Play leaders we are able to get out a variety of exciting equipment. They demonstrate so all children know what to do, how to play and join in. All younger children love joining in and playing with the older children and it is great to see all different ages playing and interacting together. The Play leaders help facilitate a more active lunchtime.





Children in EYFS have been enjoying 'Mini Wheelers' to develop their physical development.

We are enjoying being part of TASA, our partnership with cluster schools enabling a higher proportion of our pupils being able to represent TCP. This term as part of TASA we have attended High 5 Netball tournaments (and won), girls and boys football events and Cross Country.

As part of our membership with WLSSP we have enjoyed the opportunity to attend SEND / Inclusion events, UKS2 Bikeability and develop our Outdoor and adventurous education through character development sessions for UKS2 pupils. 


Also this term Year 1 children have started going swimming once a week and they are progressing well, this will continue into Spring term. LKS2 enjoyed PE sessions and an after school club with Wigan Warriors Rugby League coaches. All of KS2 have been getting fit and active with Healthy Living and Fitness sessions. Targeted groups of children are accessing the PE Plus Programme to develop thier fundamental movement skills.  Staff are accessing CPD to further improve delivery of the PE curriculum. 

Curriculum Swimming

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:

Swimming Competencies

% Year 6 Pupils (51 pupils)

Swim Competently over 25m



Use a range of strokes effectively


Perform safe  self-rescue in different water-based situations
