Sport Premium



At St Teresa's RC Primary all our Year 3 children receive swimming lessons as part of the PE curriculum. For those that need extra support we provide catch up lessons in year 4.  By the end of Year 6, all children must be able to swim 25m unaided. Below you will find our results.
Academic year 2016-2017 - 90% (27/30)


 Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety


How many Year 6 in 2017-18:

What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke] when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


What percentage of your Year 6 pupils could perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations when they left your primary school at the end of last academic year?


Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional provision for swimming but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

What is the sports premium?

Up until the academic year 2019/2020, the Government is making available to all schools a sum of money annually to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money presently equates to £8000 per school per year plus an additional £5 per child. For our school this means approximately £9,000 per year.


At St Teresa’s RC Primary school we strive to deliver a rich and varied PE curriculum and we are committed to engage more pupils in extra-curricular sporting activities and events. We aim to ensure that;

• all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
• the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in competitions with other schools
• staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
• some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints eg. swimming
• we make use of collaborative and partnership working.

Our funding in 2014/15 had the following impact;

 We bought in to the Local Authority bronze sports package which provided CPD for our PE coordinator and facilitated second level competitions in the area. We got through to the Mini-Golf competition and Swimming finals after winning at local level.

We bought in to the Local Cluster of schools Sports Package where a PE specialist arranged competitions between the local schools and provided advice and CPD for staff. We took part in Basketball, Handball, Mini-Golf, Football and Gymnastics Competitions.  This involved a greater number of children compared to previous years. Our NQT’s received training on Physical Literacy and our Sports Coaches received training on Move with Gymnastics.

Children in all year groups received specialist coaching in PE.

We provided additional after-school sports clubs. Cross-country, Football, Fitness, Multi-skills, Rounders, Swimming and Athletics.

We provided transport to sports competitions where parents were unable to drive.

We employed a member of staff to organise multi-skills activities at lunch time and to provide playground leadership opportunities and training for our year five pupils. We noticed a reduction in the number of behavioural incidents at lunch times as the children were actively engaged in sports activities.  We also noticed an increase in confidence of our Year five pupils who developed leadership skills when they were delivering the playground activities.

Swimming lessons were provided for all Year three children and all of them attained their Level 1 Award.

We were able to achieve our Silver Kitemark.
