Gold for Cressage

Christ Church Primary in Cressage are celebrating a prestigious Gold Mark for their Sports and PE provision from the Government School Games body.

They’ve been awarded Gold due to the increase in children taking part in out of school clubs with local providers, the high quality of the school’s sporting after-school clubs, and the training of Y6s to be Sports Leaders. Sports lead Mrs Martin explains, “We make fitness and helping children to increase their activity levels a high priority, as we know active children are healthy, fit, happy and learn well. We want to set patterns for life not just for in school, so we’re really proud that the Gold Award recognises the emphasis on out-of-school activity too.”

Head Mrs Cansdale says, “We currently have a Mile Challenge going where all children (and staff!) are improving their mile running time in our beautiful school grounds.”
