Look out for Year 2-6 Football competitions coming soon!

Welcome to Ravenbank Primary School's PE and School Sports page! We will update this page regularly to provide you with upcoming competitions and the results we have achieved as they come in. The sports calendar is currently being drawn up and we hope to have teams ready to enter competitions soon at Lymm High School and Priestley College.

Please see below for some of the successes we have had in previous years!

100 Mile Challenge

Well done to all the children in KS2 who took part in the '100 mile challenge' last year.

All the children in KS2 were challenged to travel at least 100 miles by walking, jogging or running during the school day and tracking their distance travelled using pedometers .

The challenge was initiated by Active Cheshire in conjunction with sponsor New Balance who provided the school with funds towards getting children more active. As a thank you for taking part, the school was given £200 to provide rewards for children who were able to cover the whole 100 miles. However, in typical Ravenbank fashion, some of the children went further than the given target and covered in excess of 1,400 miles! For this extraordinary achievement, the children were given a special reward - vouchers to spend in Decathlon and Sports Direct.

Sport and PE

Sport and PE at Ravenbank Primary School is highly regarded amongst the staff and children. We achieved the 2015/16 'Gold' Sainsbury's School Games Mark in recognition of all the hard work the children and staff have done in all areas of the PE curriculum as well as the success achieved across a range of sports competitions in local, district and regional events. This 'Gold' mark has been achieved for three years in a row.

Part of this success is due to the PE Funding provided by the Government to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Please see the documents below to see how we have spent, and are planning to spend, our allocated budget in the previous and current financial years. More information about the PE Funding at the bottom of this page.

Additional sporting activity opportunities are provided by our dedicated teaching staff through after-school clubs, competitions and sporting event days. We are very successful in many of the inter-school competitions we enter at Lymm High School, and have attended a number of Level 2 (Warrington) and Level 3 (Cheshire) Finals due to our sporting achievements. We also enjoy links with Warrington Wolves, Lymm Rovers Football Club, Lymm Rugby Club, Lymm Tennis Club, Lymm Cricket Club and other sports clubs in and around the Lymm area.

Physical Education Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

What does this funding mean for Primary Schools?

Tougher assessment of sport and physical education provision via Ofsted to ensure the funding is bringing the maximum benefit for all pupils, with schools being held to account for how they spend the funding. New provision, as part of initial teacher training to produce a new generation of primary teachers with a particular specialism in PE. This funding is only secured up until August 2015, and therefore sustainability is key in ensuring funding is maximised.
