Physical Education (P.E.)

Sports News:


We are delighted to announce that we,
have achieved the School Games Gold
Mark Award for the 2018/19 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.

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.

Netball Match
On Monday, Year 5/6 girls played in a netball tournament against other local schools. They all worked really hard as a team and as the tournament went on, they got better and better. They took all advice on board and used it in the next game. Overall, we finished joint 3rd with Park Mead in the tournament.
Well done to all the girls that played!

On Friday 1st February, I took some Year 3 and 4's to play in a Dodgeball Tournament against other local schools. We had a Cranleigh team and made up another team with some children from Park Mead. Both teams played extremely well and our school won the values certificates (voted by other schools) which included: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork. Our 'Cran-mead' team came 2nd in their pool, so played against Park Mead for 3rd place overall. Unfortunately, they lost this game, but still managed to come 4th out of 8 teams. Our 'Cranleigh' team came 1st in their pool, so played Wonersh and Shamley Green in the final! We managed to dodge lots of shots, but in the end we lost by 1 point and came 2nd overall. We had super afternoon playing dodgeball and they all played really well!

On Tuesday, 29th Jan 2019, Year 3 played a football match against Park Mead School. We worked out our positions and chose Ben to be our Captain. Alfie volunteered to be our Goalkeeper. We played so well that Alfie and our defender Jodie only touched the ball TWICE! Nicholas, Oscar, Bailey and Tola almost scored, but they had a very good goalkeeper who stopped every shot. Kevin, Bailey and Courtney were fantastic midfielders and ensured the ball stayed in our half. Throughout the match, we worked hard as a team, finding space and passing to each other to score a goal. The match finished 0-0, but we hope to win our next match.
