How a wide variety of sports can be used to motivate children in PE Since joining the School Sports Partnership three years ago, Wistaston Junior in Crewe has developed a strong ethos for sport and seen huge improvements in PE & Sport as it fills breaktimes with a multitude of physical activities to interest everyone.

Health & Fitness Coordinator Keith explains the Golden Mile scheme, which encourages pupils to walk, jog or run 50 miles a year; School Sports Coordinator Phil trains 32 Phys Kids in Yrs 5 & 6 in how to get infants more active; and the school council provides toys and games for the playground. After-school activities bring in experts: Joanne to teach skipping, retired caretaker Dennis for carpet bowls, parent Jo for girls’ football and budding golf champion and pupil Lewis for golf lessons. Teachers don’t miss out either as they learn from the experts too. Healthy Week brings a visit from the Environmental Health Officer, special meals and culminates with a Healthy Disco offering vegetables & water instead of crisps & fizzy drinks.
