We use the premium to secure improvemnets in the following 5 indicators:

  • encouraging active play during break and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sport clubs and activities.
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of KS2, so that every child leaving primary school is able to swim.

Co delivery of PE lessons, through the Vale Royal School Sportsd Partnership funded by the PE grant has proved extremely successful and will continue to run due to its success. Teachers have benefitted from observing specialist staff delivering PE to their classes then using those new skills to deliver high quality lessons. This high quality service which supports high participation in PE and Sport. The Vale Royal Sports partnership plan, organise and deliver a huge range of activities, competitions, training and subject leadership advice. In order to sustain this participation, we will continue to pay for this service.

This year, through the Vale Royal school Sport partnership and VAle Royal School Sport Strategy Group our children have competed and participated in a number of sporting opportinities against other local Primary Schools, which include:  a Year 1 Balance Festival, Year 5/6 Rounders Festival, Year 5/6 Cross Country Competition,Year 5/6 Sports Hall Athletics Competition, Year 5/6 Football Festival, Year 3/4 Tag Rugby Compeition, Year 4 Adventure! Run! Challenge! Compeition.

Our School Football team have also competed in a number of matches organsied against other local Primary Schools.

All pupils have attended an assembly led by an athlete (women's footballer and head academy coach at LFC) to inspire them and encourage them to make healthy lifestyle choices in terms of diet and physical activity.

The Sports Grant has enabled us to purchase extra equipment to enhance our PE lessons, such as new sym mats and qwick cricket sets as well as subsidise transport costs to take pupils to and from sporting competitons.

Our year 3 and 4 children have all attended Swimming lessons throughout Spring Term 2019 at Sir John Deane's leisure Centre.

We have a dedicated Sports Coach who delives P.E. Lessons to all pupils each week, funded through the Sports Premium Grant.

Throughout the year our Year 5’s have received training to enable them to become Sports Ambassadors and Fizz Kids representatives, which encourages more children to participate in PE activities at lunchtime. The training has been provided by Weaverham High School PE teacher, Mr Finney, who visits school.

62% of children at Crowton Christ Church Primary school regularly attend PE/Sport activities that include Swimming, Judo, Tennis, Ice Hockey, Dance, Horse riding, Basketball, Rugby and Athletics. Being such a small school we often lack the correct number of children for teams in competitions. With our allocated PE money we can offer clubs available and the sustained impact will see children at Crowton Christ Church Primary attending an increased number of competitions and become more competitive in the future.

Crowton Christ Church C.E. Primary School has been awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Mark in Bronze. This mark award recognises the hard work of staff to ensure all our pupils have access to a wide breadth of sports opportunities in school.
