  • Consistently creating participation experiences that focus on how pupils move, connect, think and feel, helping them understand and develop their own relationship with movement and physical activity to find value, enjoyment and meaning. - ensuring we provide active playtimes for all year groups through the provision led by our Year 5 Playleaders.
  • Working on building character development for our least active pupils, building up their resilience through sport activities.
  • Developing links with local communities and completing several inspiring projects
  • Engaging with national sporting opportunities; including International Women's Day and the #letgirlsplay initiative. - providing teacher CPD, where staff have been encouraged to make each lesson as physically active as possible, getting children moving throughout the day and limiting those inactive periods.
  • Pupils taking part more frequently in intra-competitions within the school day and also inter competitions where they compete against children from other schools, showing greater determination and finding strength in their teamwork.

Headteacher at Rossett Acre Primary School, Mrs Corrine Penhale, says, "We are delighted to have been recognised for our success. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year. A special thanks to Mrs Wood as our PE Lead who has worked tirelessly to support the physical literacy of our pupils both within the school day and through engaging participation in external competitions."
