Sports and PE
At Crondall Primary School we aim to prepare all our children to be healthy and lead an active life. We achieve high standards and have high levels of attainment in a range of activities. Pupils leave Crondall Primary School with the knowledge, skills and motivation that they need to equip them for a healthy lifestyle. All our children follow a teaching programme in Outdoor Games, Gymnastics and Dance – amounting to 2 hours per week.

The effect of this funding on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
Children’s attainment in PE is increasing year on year and this progress is partly due to the CPD opportunities and the increased focus on PE within school.
Over 50% of our pupils engaged in at least one extracurricular sporting club in the last academic year which is an increase on the same time last year. This includes a variety of opportunities such as Judo, Netball, Football, Fencing and Rounders. Many of our pupils attend more than one after school sporting activity per week. 40% of our children participated in a new extra curricular sporting club for the first time during the last academic year.
We have continued to develop the range of sporting activities we offer at Level 1 (within school) by the use of House competitions. Last year this included Netball, Tag Rugby and Hockey. Our Year Six House Leaders and School Captains have been involved in organising these competitions and a calendar is in place for this academic year. This year we have introduced Sport Leaders who have taken part in training to create bespoke activities and games for our younger children during lunchtimes.
We have also increased our partnership with Premier Sports by using the provider to offer free lunchtime clubs to children and subsidise clubs after school.
We have competed in Level 2 competitive sports with other schools in Athletics, Rounders, Cross Country, Netball and many more. We took part in over 10 different events in the last academic year. We also entered a ‘B’ team into the local netball league this year too.
This increase in sports participation led us to gaining the Sainsbury’s School Games Silver Award in 2016-17.
At Crondall Primary School we strive to have all our pupils leaving as competent swimmers, being able to swim at least 25m.
Year 6 (2017 – 2018) out of 24 pupils:
21 pupils able to swim at least 25m 3 pupils 0 – 5m or not assessed
88% of Year 6 pupils achieved 25m or over.
