Healthy, Active Lifestyles


Physical Education (PE), at Crawford's CofE Primary School, is an integral aspect of school life. A fundamental aim within our school is to encourage every pupil to participate fully in PE lessons as well as develop a love and enjoyment of being physically active. Pupils in KS1 and KS2 all receive a minimum of 120 minutes of timetabled physical education every week.


Pupils within both key stages are given the opportunity to take part in a range of extra-curricular PE and physical activities before and after school including, Breakfast Club (Monday to Friday) and a range of extracurricular activities such as gymnastics, dance, football, basketball, multi-sports, athletics, dodgeball and dance.

We are proud to offer high-quality PE teaching (via a specialist Enrichment Leader and fully trained staff), pupil-led intra-sports competitions (using House Sports Captains), inter-sports competitions (with local schools in the Gipping Valley School Sports Partnership), amonthly 'Get Active' PE assembly; annual celebration of sport in Sport's Week and of course on Sport's Day, regular professional visits from a variety of practitioners and swimming expertise from our swimming instructor/ Enrichment Leader.  


PE and School Sports Funding


The government is determined to ensure a lasting legacy where children will become physically active and have the skills, knowledge and motivation necessary to equip them for an active, healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sports. In order for this to happen and to improve the provision of sports and Physical Education (PE) in primary schools, each school receives specific funding to enhance the physical activity of all children, not just through PE but through out the days they are with us.


In our school, this funding has totalled £16,659 for the academic year 2023 - 2024.  Please click on the following link to view our PE & Sports Premium Funding Strategy.


The funding will be used to show improvements within 5 key areas:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting

healthy active lifestyles;

  • The profile of PE, sports and physical activity being raised across the school as a tool

for whole school improvement;

  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE

and introducing active learning across other curriuculum subjects; 

  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all


  • Increased participation in competitive sports.
