Our Year 2 children have participated in a sports event at Orford Jubilee Hub today (11th September 2017). The festival was called 'The Road to the Gold Coast'. This event was based around the Commonwealth Games, which will be held in Queensland in 2018. 


The children took part in a range of activities including: Yoga, Dance, Drama and multi-skills. They also had the opportunity to take part in workshops which taught them about keeping a balanced diet and its importance. The children had a fantastic time.

Our PE link Governor Mrs McCreedy- has completed 'The London to Paris bike ride'. CONGRATULATIONS
The children enjoyed our annual sports day on Friday 7th July. We give the children the opportunity to take part in competitive and team events. The team events consists of an obstacle race, relay race, javelin throwing, egg and spoon race, sack race and much more. The children earn points for their house. The competitive races are a sprint, long distance and hurdles. 
Take a look at the overall results and our sports day official programme below.
A special mention goes to Dominic Williams in Year 4, who stopped running to help a class friend who fell over.
Well done Dominic we are very proud of you!

We are continually striving to improve our PE curriculum to ensure that all children enjoy their PE experience at Culcheth Primary School. Each week the children are taught using the scheme 'Real PE'. This focuses on the development of agility, balance and coordination, healthy competition and cooperative learning through a unique approach to teaching and learning in PE. The foundations of the scheme are based on Fundamental Movement Skills of agility, balance and coordination, inclusive competition and broader essential holistic skills.

Each year we receive  PE/Sport premium money.
The document below shows how we are spending the money for this academic year and it explains how it will make a difference.
Also below is a brief overview of key skills that children should possess in PE.
We have measured the impact that the sports premium money have had at our school by using an assessment wheel.

We celebrate our sporting success every week in a special assembly.
We achieved GOLD for our school games award!

So why did we receive GOLD the highest award?

The application looked at:

·    the range of competitive sports on offer to KS2 within and     outside school

·    participation in after school sporting activities - we actually scored 133% in this as most pupils are involved in one or more club; 38% of KS2 are in the Running Club – where participation at the weekly Junior Park Run at Orford Hub is phenomenal!

·    pupil involvement in sports planning and leadership – 28% of KS2 have been involved in leadership (through the summer academy, Active8 or PhysKids)

·    support for talented young sports people

·    inclusion – opportunities for all

·    communication

·    links to local sports clubs


Year 5 and 6 children took part in a sport leadership scheme during the Summer holiday.
They managed to achieve bronze and silver awards.

Our school received the ‘afPE quality mark’ award for our sporting achievements and high quality PE in our school. Well done to all the children, staff and governors for your hardwork and dedication to PE and sport in our school.

Our annual cross country event is nearly here! Over 300 children throughout Warrington will participate in a competitive race. We will have 32 of our runners taking part.

We are an extremely active school. We aspire to give our children a wide experience of a variety of sports.
It is important that the children know that
