School Sports

Over the past couple of years, we have tried to give our pupils the opportunity to take part in the full range of competitive sports and festivals arranged by the Crewe and Nantwich Sports Partnership.

Since September 2013, following the increased funding for Primary Sports, we have been able to enhance and develop our Sports and PE programme further - both curriculum and extra-curricular sports. Our use of the Sports Premium is summarised here.

You can also read our Sports Strategy here.

As a result of the hard work and dedication of all teaching staff, not just the PE Team, in 2014 we were awarded the Sainsbury's School Games Silver Mark. This means we were recognised for providing children in our school with an excellent Curriculum culminating in Level 1 'House' competitions, a wide and varied range of after school sports clubs, Level 2 and 3 competition experience as well as allowing the children to show leadership skills by leading events and activities for other children at play times. In 2015 we added to this by allowing our children to share their voice and ideas through the School Sport Organising Committee. As as result of this, coupled with the continued offer of sport across the school we achieved Gold. We were awarded Gold for 4 successive years before this year (2019) having our contribution to school sports and community links acknowledged with the presentation of a Platinum award - the highest reward available to schools. You can read our press release here.

Over the past few years we have tried to give our children as many experiences as possible when it comes to sport. As a result, we have entered most, if not all, of the competitions organised by the Crewe and Nantwich School Sports Partnership and others. Some of the squads/teams from this year are pictured above.


We regularly qualify for the Level 3 County Finals as local primary school competition winners. Over the past few years, our basketball team, mixed and boys' cricket squad, Y3/4 and Y5/6 tri-golf teams, tag rugby teams (twice) and girls' football team have all participated in the various finals. Whilst no team returned with a medal, our basketball team and Y3/4 tri-golf teams were both awarded "Spirit of the Games" awards.

One of the key changes to our PE Curriculum has been the introduction of Inter-house competitions with each of the classes. Our pupils learn the skills and tactics of a different sport each half-term; this leads into inter-house competitions and then the inter-school competition. 

We have also trained pupils as Playground Leaders. They now lead games/activities for KS1 children at lunchtime on a rota basis, developing their own leadership skills.

We have an established Sports Council, with representatives from Years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.  They meet regularly to review the sports on offer and suggest ways to improve our PE and extra-curricular provision.  They have also organised and run some stalls at the Christmas/Summer Fairs.
