Sports News:


We are delighted to announce that we,
have achieved the School Games Silver
Mark Award for the 2016/17 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in
2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment
to the development of competition across their school and into the
community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
With many key stage 2 children competing in local
inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils
for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young
volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of
participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that
the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A big thank you to the parents who support their children in this participation. 
We look forward to applying once again in 2018!

Physical Education develops children’s physical skills, confidence, capabilities and potential.  It gives opportunities for children to be creative and competitive while learning to work with and respect others. 

At Cranleigh C of E Primary School children learn how to plan, perform and evaluate actions, often in pairs and small groups, helping them to develop the quality and effectiveness of their work.  We promote a positive attitude towards active lifestyles and aim to introduce children to lifelong physical activity. 

Children in all year groups will be working with specific sports coaches to enhance their skills further.  All children also have access to sporting extra curricular clubs.

House Sport

Cranleigh C of E Primary School runs a programme of house sports throughout the academic year for key stage 2.  Children enter tournaments for football, rounders and netball in their houses to battle for the inter-house cups and trophies.  The biggest event is Sports Day in the summer term where both key stage one and two children partake in a variety of races.  Points gained at these sporting events contribute to the overall house point totals for the year.

Cranleigh Primary 5 - 3 Wonersh and Shamley Green - Oct 2016
Y5 played their second game this year, this time travelling to Wonersh and Shamley Green. It was a very close encounter between two very well organised teams. After conceding early on, Cranleigh fought back and drew level through Joe Frawley. The pressure was mounting as Cranleigh laid siege to the Wonersh goal. Josh Davies, Teddy Perry and Hamish McInnes all had good chances that were well saved, but eventually Cranleigh took the lead with a goal from Rowan Stewart. The second half saw Cranleigh on the back foot and despite some excellent defending from Teddy Mills and Edward Hewitt and numerous saves from Thomas Purvis in goal, Wonersh managed to draw level. Rowan Stewart then scored his second of the game, but again Cranleigh were pegged back. Going into the final few minutes, with the score level at 3-3, Theo VP stepped up with two fantastic goals to secure a well deserved win for Cranleigh. 

Year 5 & 6 Football - Oct 2016

Football Year 5 and year 6 teams from Cranleigh Primary travelled to Park Mead on Monday afternoon for their first football fixture of the year. The year 5 team played out a hard fought contest, and despite some superb goals from Joe Frawley, Teddy Perry and Rowan Stewart, Cranleigh eventually went down 6-3, but the boys showed fantastic team spirit in what was their first game together.

It was also the first game for the Year 6 team who put in a spirited performance. Unfortunately, the score line was again not in our favour, but as their first game together, there were plenty of positives to be taken. Next week the Year 5 team travel to Wonersh and Shamley Green school.

Year 4 Football - Sept 2016

A Year 4 team attended an U9 football festival run at Cranleigh Prep school last week. The festival was run by coaches from Chelsea football club and ex Chelsea and England defender Graham Le Saux was in attendance, running a question and answer session with the kids. Sixteen schools entered the festival and schools were drawn into four groups of four. Cranleigh Primary were in a group alongside Finton House, Garden House and Ravenscourt Prep. Cranleigh finished top of their group with two wins and a draw, progressing through to the second round where they would meet the three other group winners.
The first game of the second round was against Wonersh and Shamley Green, which finished in a draw, however Cranleigh went on to win their next two games against Eaton House Manor and Fulham Prep, sealing their place at the top of the group and therefore finishing as overall winners of the tournament.
The boys were presented with their winners medals by Le Saux and the Chelsea coaches.  There was further joy for one of the team, as Ronnie was awarded player of the tournament, being picked out by one of the coaches for his hard work and talent.  It was an excellent day for Cranleigh Primary, and hopefully the first of many successes this year.
