Vision Statement

Crowcroft Park Primary School promotes teamwork, imagination, personal health and fitness in a fun, encouraging environment. Children of all abilities are given opportunities to develop and achieve.

Our aims

Here at Crowcroft Park Primary School, we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupil’s physical and emotional development and health.

We aim to provide a broad and balanced P.E. curriculum to aid children’s increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Through a balance of individual, paired and group activities, we aim to cater for the different strengths, needs and preferences of each child, using differentiated activities where appropriate.

We believe that through the variety of opportunities that PE offers, children can develop a sense of personal achievement, fair play, teamwork and an understanding of the ways in which sport can transcend social and cultural boundaries.

We plan a range of activities that aim to provide children with a broad base of movement knowledge, skills and understanding, which they can refine and expand throughout their primary school years. All children are encouraged to join clubs and extend their interest and involvement in sport.

Children are taught to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body, and begin to understand those factors which affect health and fitness.

We offer outdoor education opportunities for children throughout the school.

Different experiences for different age groups ensure all will get a range of appropriate challenges as they move through our school.

Please see details of upcoming sporting events on our main calendar.
