Crewe and Nantwich School Sport Partnership supports local schools to deliver high quality PE and school sport. We work with primary and secondary schools to enhance the quality of PE through the curriculum, intra and inter school competition.
We aim to provide high quality competition for all pupils in Crewe and Nantwich.
Children have the opportunity to lead through sport and competition in their school and in the Crewe and Nantwich area.
We aim to provide school staff with the opportunity to learn and develop their knowledge and skills through a structured CPD programme.
Aim and vision of the School Sport Partnership.
By working with schools and other local community clubs the Partnership aims to ensure that young people in the Crewe and Nantwich area:
- Have access to high quality physical education.
- Have opportunities to take part in a wide range of school sport.
- Can challenge themselves in competition both within and in between schools.
- Can learn leadership skills through appropriate sports leadership activities.

- Have opportunities to take their talent to the highest possible level within sport.
The School Games is the Government’s initiative for school sport and is their strategic priority to increase the number of young people participating in competition and provide a lasting legacy for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Schools Games are funded by DCMS, Sport England (which distributes Lottery funding), the Department of Health and the Department for Education; with outcomes across School, Health and Sport.
The Games are made up of four levels of activity: competition in schools, between schools, at a county/area level and also at national level:
•Intra-school (Level 1) – sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition.
•Inter-school (Level 2) – individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions.
• School Games Festivals (Level 3) – the county/area will stage multi-sport School Games Festivals (Winter and Summer Games) as a culmination of year-round school sport competition.
• The School Games (Level 4) – the national multi-sport event where most talented young people in the UK will be selected to compete by National Governing Bodies of Sport .
