PE and Sports


At Gainsborough we want every child to be healthy and fit and have the opportunity to participate in sport and PE so that they are physically confident. This is achieved through positive teaching and learning experiences at all levels and for all children. 

PE and sport is led by the PE subject leader and supported by all members of staff.  

Our PE lessons cover all areas of the National curriculum, including; games, gymnastics, dance, outdoor activities and athletics.

In swimming, we take part in the Crewe annual swimming gala, in which we are becoming more successful in each year. 

This year, we have also participated in several other sporting competitions.These include; basketball, dodgeball, high 5 netball, cricket and cross country. We are hoping to further expand this by entering into local tag rubgy tournaments.

Inclusive sports - here at Gainsborough we view sport as sport for all. We believe that everybody should have the opportunity to take part in sport. Inclusive sports allows our special educational needs children to take part in a variety of different activities at South Cheshire College. We take part in this three times a year.


This year we introduced a 'dance week' and all children throughout the school took part in a dance workshop. Some year groups danced to hip hop, whilst others danced to Brazilian and music from other countries. At the end of their dance workshop our children performed for their parents to showcase their new skills and moves!

Pupil Voice/ Match Reports

It is important that our children not only enjoy the sports that they are taking part in, but they have the opportunity to reflect and share their experiences with everybody else in the school. We encourage our children to share their successes and to be proud of what they have achieved.

In school, we allow our children to prepare match reports which they read out in Cup Winners assembly, and we also post all successes on our weekly newsletter and website. We also ensure that our children enjoy their PE lessons at school, by completing pupil voice monitoring sheets and conducting staff questionnaires.



A safe and supportive environment; safe from hurt by others, in what they say or do; safe to learn within an enquiring environment; encouraging creativity, and a questioning mind.


Smart ways of thinking and learning, behaving and the way in which we present ourselves, as a member of Gainsborough School.


Treat others as you wish to be treated, help each other to be happy within school, greet others with a smile, help to create a happy and enthusiastic place to learn.
