Implementing the “Sports Premium” in our School
The Government has given every Primary School funding to develop Physical Education and competitive sport.
At Crowlees we offer a wide range of sporting activities – both curriculum-based and extra-curricular.
We offer a range of facilities including an indoor hall, an external hardcore surface and large playing fields.
Children have the opportunity to take part in fixtures and competitions with other schools.
In year 4, all children learn to swim and attend weekly swimming lessons.
Crowlees Events Calendar 2017 – 18
For the year 2016-17 Crowlees CE (C) J&I School received sports premium money and it will be used in the following ways.
- Sports coaching from Pennine Sports Partnership – Specialist PE teachers and coaches work alongside teachers during PE lessons. The opportunity to work alongside specialists enables our teachers to observe and team teach lessons, therefore developing their skills and knowledge when teaching high quality PE.
- Membership of Pennine Sports Partnership (PSP).
- Residential trip – cost is to subsidise residential to Little Deer Wood activity centre for all Year 4 children
- Healthy Schools Week – provide a wide range of healthy and active experiences for the whole school during this week. We aim to have visitors in to school to teach the children new sports and to raise awareness of the importance of healthy lifestyles.
- Sports kit – in order to raise the profile of sport in school, we would like to provide children competing in sport events with a kit. This will mean that our children are easily recognised when competing and the children will be proud to show that they are representing our school.
- Gymnastics mats – in order to teach high quality gymnastics lessons, we need to increase the number of gymnastics mats that we have in school.
- Transport – coach for NSSW event for Year 4 children.
- Professional development of PE coordinator – attendance on courses to develop teaching and learning of PE-disseminated to staff. Supply cover for PE coordinator to take children to events during the school day.

- Encourage our children to improve their leadership skills through sport:
Play leader training (Year 6).
