PE & Sport Premium
At Wistaston Church Lane Academy we recognise the value of sports and physical activity in ensuring that children lead active, healthy and happy lives.
PE and Sport provide our children with opportunities to develop the important qualities of self-control, determination, communication, team work and commitment. This should lead to improved concentration, attitude and achievement in all aspects of their personal development.
We have welcomed the Government’s additional funding to improve provision of PE and Sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this funding to enhance our provision of high quality PE, both within and beyond the curriculum and to add to our existing resources.
You can read our Strategy for using the PE and Sports Premium in the documents below.
School Sports Days
We run a sports day annually for every child. We believe in promoting competitive sports but also promoting participation and enjoyment. We find that running a team-based sports day for the Infants and a more traditional race event for the Juniors gives children the chance to succeed.
Junior Sports Day
On the day, children in Key Stage Two take part in three out of five track events: sprint, sack, bean bag, 500 metres and the relay.
A few days before the event the children take part in our field events: javelin and long jump

Transporting children to sports events
We prefer that parents make their own arrangements for taking children to sports events. However, if agreed with a member of staff, we may be able to provide transport in a car. On such rare occasions we expect parents to provide and fit a booster seat for the child, if necessary. Here is the law regarding child car seats which you may wish to check for clarity: www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules.
