Sports at Cowick CE Primary School


PE and sport is a very important part of Cowick CE Primary School. All our children do at least 2 hours of sports and PE each week and they are encouraged to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. This includes opportunities to achieve at least 30 minutes activity outside PE lessons every day, through active playtime sessions or after-school activities. All classes have timetabled lessons and we make full use of our hall, playground and field. We try to provide a variety of opportunities that cover the full curriculum and enable children to pursue different interests. We also train our older children to lead sessions so that all children participate and enjoy being active.

We are delighted that for the last few years we have been awarded the School Games Mark Silver Award in recognition of our high quality provision. This year, we surpassed this and achieved GOLD! 

Thank you to everyone involved in helping us achieve this award, we are all extremely proud of this achievement and we are really lucky to have children in our school that love and have a passion for sport!  The amount of sporting talent in our school is amazing.  Please remember to keep sharing with us your achievements for clubs you attend out of school with us!

We look forward to applying once again in 2020!

 What is the Sports Premium?

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

The number of pupils in the school attract the funding using data from the January school census.

The government provides the Sports Premium to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school.
