Physical Education 2020/21


Let's get active!

Subject Led by Miss Adams

At St. Chad's, we recognise the importance of physical education on our pupils health and well-being. 

We strive to offer a wide range of engaging activities that incorporate the National Curriculum objectives through small progressive steps. 

School Games Mark

For a number of years, St. Chad's have actively taken part in the School Games Mark. 

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. 

Participating in this process allows us to evaluate our PE provision and assists us in developing an action plan for future progress.


In 2018/19, we were awarded a Bronze Games Mark. 

In 2019/20, we hoped to better that Bronze however, COVID-19 restrictions meant that many competitions were cancelled. 

As a school, we continued to provided pupils activities whilst at home and we were awarded a Virtual School Games Award. 

For the academic year 2020/21, the School Games Mark Framework will be positioned as a self-review tool to support schools and other educational establishments to reflect on their involvement in the School Games in light of the country’s ongoing plight with COVID-19. This is something that we will be continuing to engage with.

Vale Royal School Sports Partnership

At St. Chad's we are active members of the Vale Royal School Sports Partnership. 

We work closely with other schools across the Winsford and Northwich areas to to develop Physical Education, School Sport & Wellbeing. 


Usually, we would attend many of the competitions offered by the partnership, however due to Covid restrcitions these are taking place very differently this year. 

Our Year 5 Class are taking part in the Virtual Leadership Academy to develop their leadership skills with the view of becoming Play Leaders for the School. 

Many of our classes have also been taking part in competition and challenge lessons whilst external competitions cannot take place and we hope to once again be celebrated for our contributions throughout the year. 


Coaches at St. Chad's

Throughout the Year, all classes have the oppotunity to work with specialist coaches in order to develop their skills in different sports areas. 

During our Autumn Term, Year 1-5 were fortunate to take part in a full term of Gymnastics provided by Beth Tweddle Gymnastics. 

Year 6 took part in Judo provided by Judo Education.

Years 1-4 took part in Multi-Skills cricket sessions provided by Cheshire Cricket.
