We were proud to play with girls in our squad as we have recently signed the pledge committing ourselves to further develop girls football and enable them to access more opportunities to play football.

Basketball Festival

All classes from Year 1 to Year 6 participated in our first festival of this academic year, led by South Ribble. The Basketball Festival helped teach some new skills and further develop prior skills. All children enjoyed this opportunity. 

 2022 - 2023

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.  We therefore evaluate our strategy against the following key performance indicators:

 

Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.

Key indicator 2: The profile of sport and PE is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and physical activities offered to all pupils.

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.

 

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:
