Year 3 Football Team win 'Road to Goodison' competition at Finch Farm!

Congratulations to our Year 5/6 Rugby team who played their first round match of the Warrington Wolves Fire Service 7s at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Friday 5th May. The team played wonderfully together, without making a single mistake throughout the whole match, to win 5-2. They will now go into the second round in June. Thank you to all the parents for their wonderful support and a big well done to the children who prepared so well in the build up to the match!


100 Mile Challenge

Ravenbank Primary have signed up to the '100 Mile Challenge' from September 2016 supported by Active Cheshire and New Balance.

The 'challenge' is for every child in Years 3-6 to walk, jog or run 100 miles within the 2016/17 academic year. Mr Kemp, our PE and School Sports Apprentice, will be assisting the children by setting up the course around school and tracking their progress using pedometers provided by Active Cheshire.

As a reward for accepting and completing the challenge, the children at Ravenbank will receive certificates to recognise the progress they make as they work towards covering 100 miles throughout the academic year, as well as feel the benefit of regular exercise.


Sports and PE Photographs


Sport and PE

Sport and PE at Ravenbank Primary School is highly regarded amongst the staff and children. We achieved the 2014/15 '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.

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.

Sport & PE at Ravenbank
The children at Ravenbank Primary School enjoy two hours of timetabled PE lessons each week which cover a wide range of sporting activities, such as:
  • Invasion games
  • Net/wall games
  • Striking/Fielding games
  • Target games
  • Track athletics
  • Field athletics
  • Gymnastics
  • Dance
  • Outdoor and Adventurous Activities
  • Swimming
  • Teamworking/Teambuilding

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 strong links with Lymm Rugby Club, Lymm Tennis Club, Lymm Cricket Club, Lymm Hockey 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.
