Elton Primary Sports for 2016-17

Last year we worked hard to raise the profile of PE and healthy lifestyle within our school. Through increased participation during sports, and fantastic sportsmanship, Elton achieved the Silver School Games award. 

We are delighted to have joined Cheshire Oaks School Sports Partnership this year. The cluster will support PE with inter school competitions, continuous professional development (CPD) for staff, sports leadership programmes for pupils and special events. We are looking forward to promoting a variety of sport and engaging pupils in new experiences.

Not only do we want to improve the profile of PE but also of the school, Elton have hosted many CPD events and in recognition of this received a free bag of sporting equipment.

As a result of last year pupil/staff voice questionnaires, it was evident that dance and gymnastics were two areas of the curriculum that needed more recognition. Following on from that we have employed Beth Tweedle’s Coaching Company (Total Gymnastics) and PDS Dance Company to work closely alongside our staff and pupils to deliver an excellent standard of knowledge and skill. Each year group throughout this academic will benefit from our coaching companies and their high level of teaching and skills. 

Also this year, we will continue to compete in local school netball and football leagues, giving enthusiastic pupils the opportunity to travel to new schools to ‘show off’ sporting skills.

Pupil and staff voice will follow after half term.
