Sports Premium

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.
