Crayke Church of England Primary School
For the academic year 2013/14, primary schools in England were awarded funding from a Primary PE and Sports Grant. The funding is to be used for improving the provision of PE and sport for all pupils within school. It is part of the Government’s initiative to help children and young people lead healthier lifestyles.
Our local cluster of primary schools used part of its money to employ two sports coaches for the year, to work alongside staff in order to deliver high quality teaching and learning. They currently teach in each school one day per week and throughout the year will offer/support an after school club at some point. Mr Andrew Duffy teaches at Crayke each Wednesday and after February half term will lead Rugby club with Miss Henn.
The cluster schools collectively contribute to the employment of a schools’ sports co-ordinator based at Easingwold Secondary School. Their role is to co-ordinate competitive events between the cluster schools. These include football, cross country, tag rugby, netball and athletics.
At Crayke School we take both good sportsmanship and sporting achievement very seriously. We celebrate team effort and taking part as much as those who achieve success in their chosen activities. We hope that each child will find a sport which they enjoy and in which they can excel. Other after school clubs on offer at the moment are: football, netball, Key Stage One Multi-sports and martial arts.
“Mr. Duffy’s lessons are fun, with different games each week and we learn something new each time.”
“I have particularly enjoyed learning Thai boxing and different ways to dodge. It’s really good and we have learnt lots.”
“In Martial Arts we learn lots of different judo moves, play different games and I really enjoy this!”
“We play lots of different games, like football games, in Multi-sports, which are fun.”
