Primary Education

A large percentage of children who start primary school at a healthy weight leave as obese so it’s clear that encouraging physical activity in key stages one and two is of paramount importance.

How is Active Cheshire supporting Primary Schools in Cheshire & Warrington?

  • Establishing the new Cheshire & Warrington PE and School Sport Strategic Board, bringing together senior representatives from across the sector to provide a strategic voice and vision for the sub-region
  • Developing a clear view of all support on offer in order to promote suitable opportunities available to schools
  • Providing advice and guidance on the use of external, appropriately qualified coaches/volunteers in line with nationally agreed Minimum Standard
  • Helping schools to participate in the Cheshire and Warrington Sainsbury’s School Games and other relevant programmes
  • Facilitating links to local and national partners, including School Sport Partnerships, NGBs, community sports clubs, and private providers
  • Ensuring primary schools are aware of the implications of the Primary Sport Premium
