Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that they should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future year

Spring 2018

On Friday 9th February a group of Year 5 and 6 children took part in an inter schools athletics tournament at Leigh Sports Village.  They all had a wonderful time competing in events such as the long jump, the javelin, speed bounce, the triple jump and a number of team events.  It was lovely to see the children working as a team and enjoying competitive sport.  As always they were a credit to our school- well done team Christ Church.


On Thursday 18th January a group of Year 5 children attended our first ever Highland games at Leigh Sports Village. They had lots of fun taking part in some sporting events which they had never experienced before such as tossing the caber, highland steps, kiltie dash, weight for height, tug of war and towers.



On Monday 15th January we attended the School Games Mark presentation at Lowton High school. Two of our Year 5 pupils were very excited to be presented with the Silver Games Mark Award from Olympic, World and European Champion Gymnast, Beth Tweddle.



Autumn 2017

On Tuesday 21st November a group of Year 5 & 6 children took part in the Wigan Schools Cross County competition at Leigh Sports Village.  Hundreds of children took part in a particularly gruelling course and we all got very muddy! Congratulations to our children who performed brilliantly and represented our school impeccably.



On Monday 6th November a group of year 6 children took part in the final of the Leigh and Golborne schools hockey tournament. Unfortunately we didn’t win the competition, but all children performed brilliantly and we are very proud of them!



On Thursday 12th October our Year 5 children took part in a swimming gala at Leigh Sports Village. They are swam their socks off and we are very proud of them all.



On Thursday 5th October, a group of Year 6 children braved the rain to compete in a Hockey tournament attended by local schools. We were undefeated throughout the competition and will now compete in the area final. A wonderful achievement.



Well done to the school football team for doing so well in the recent competition held at Leigh RUFC. Look at those smiley faces.



Summer 2017

Take a look at these pictures of our wonderful Dodgeball team who were losing finalists at the Manchester Youth Games. What an achievement to have progressed so far, having already won the qualifying competition held at Lowton High School. The children were understandably disappointed with not winning gold but they were an absolute credit to our school, as always! Congratulations everybody, we are proud of you.



During the Summer Term a group of Key Stage 1 children took part in the Leigh School Games. The event was attended by over forty schools from across the area. They performed brilliantly and a group of children even won a bronze medal! The children were so well behaved and we are incredibly proud of them!



KS2 Leigh School games – Children from year 4 and 5 took part in an inter school competition attended by over 20 other schools from the area. They loved the opportunity to use the facilities at Leigh Sports Village and take part in activities ranging from Sports hall Athletics to rugby!



Some of our Year 5 and 6 children took part in a local school cricket competition held at Westleigh Cricket Club. It turned out to be a gloriously sunny day following a very gloomy morning, and the children really enjoyed the opportunity to take part in a tournament and use the wonderful facilities.



Spring  2017

This is a picture of our school Football team who have performed so fantastically well over the course of the year. They did brilliantly coming third in the LOGOS football league.  They have also been wonderful ambassadors to our school and Mr Hudson is so incredibly proud of them.



So we went to the Manchester Youth Games… and WON! Here are some pictures of our fabulous Tag Rugby team who visited The City of Manchester Stadium and won gold! Having won the local competition at Leigh RUFC we competed against another 24 schools from around the North West. There was much nail biting along the way for our spectators, but our stars went all the way and were victorious in an enthralling final. This is a huge achievement for our school as the Manchester Youth Games is such a prestigious competition. We are all very proud of you!



Autumn Term 2016

Our cross country team took part in a school competition held at Leigh Sports Village. It was exhausting but very fun! Special mention to Nathan Lowe, who came 10th out of 224 children and qualifies to represent Wigan in the regional competition to be held at Heaton Park in March.



Our Year 5 hockey team represented the school in a competition at Golborne High School. We had a wonderful time!



Our mixed year 5/6 Dodgeball team won the whole competition that was held at Lowton High School. They beat over 12 other teams from local schools and have now qualified for the Manchester Youth Games, wow!
