PE & Sport Premium

At Wistaston Church Lane Academy we recognise the value of sports and physical activity in ensuring that children lead active, healthy and happy lives. 

PE and Sport provide our children with opportunities to develop the important qualities of self-control, determination, communication, team work and commitment. This should lead to improved concentration, attitude and achievement in all aspects of their personal development.

We have welcomed the Government’s additional funding to improve provision of PE and Sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this funding to enhance our provision of high quality PE, both within and beyond the curriculum and to add to our existing resources.

You can read our Strategy for using the PE and Sports Premium in the documents below.



We are required to publish how many pupils within our Year Six cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strikes effectively and perform self-rescue in different water-based situations.

School Sports Days

We run a sports day annually for every child. We believe in promoting competitive sports but also promoting participation and enjoyment. We find that running a team-based sports day for the Infants and a more traditional race event for the Juniors gives children the chance to succeed.


Junior Sports Day

On the day, children in Key Stage Two take part in three out of five track events: sprint, sack, bean bag, 500 metres and the relay.

A few days before the event the children take part in our field events: javelin and long jump

Town Sports

In the 2022 event, Wistaston Church Lane finished second in Group A. Our Year Three and Year Four teams were the winners in their competition.

Our athletes train through the spring and summer for the Town Sports which usually take place on the third Monday and Wednesday in June of each year.

The Field Events usually take place on the Monday evening at the Cumberland track. The competition involves pupils in Year Three/Four, Year Five and Year Six participating in javelin, long jump and high jump.

The Track Events usually take place on the Wednesday evening at The Barony. The competition involves pupils in Year Three, Year Four, Year Five and Year Six participating in hurdles, sprint, bean bag and relay.

We compete in Group A.

Transporting children to sports events

We prefer that parents make their own arrangements for taking children to sports events. However, if agreed with a member of staff, we may be able to provide transport in a car. On such rare occasions we expect parents to provide and fit a booster seat for the child, if necessary. Here is the law regarding child car seats which you may wish to check for clarity:
