CNSSP Virtual Competition Launch

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions we can’t currently run our usual competition programme at the moment so, during the Autumn and early Spring term, we will be running virtual competitions for all pupils and schools to get involved in.

The top scores from each school will be entered into the local level 2 competitions and the highest scoring school in each sport will go forward to represent Crewe and Nantwich at the Cheshire and Warrington School Games next year.

To keep things as easy as possible for schools to run these events each sport will come with task cards and videos for each of the activities and the sports have been spread across different terms.

From September to October half term the sports will be Hockey and Rugby, between October half term and Christmas will be Basketball and Sportshall Athletics and from January to February half term we will be focusing on Netball and Girls Football.

The Virtual Competition Activity cards can be downloaded from the Competitions page and the next sports will be added at the start of each half term.

Active Classroom Sessions

We know how hard it is for teachers at the moment working under the new and ever changing guidelines so, to help schools during these tough times and enable pupils to reach their Active 60 minutes for each day, we have created some Active Classroom sessions.

Teachers will be able to show the videos in their classrooms and the children will be led through 10 minutes of activity that will, hopefully, energise them while giving a different type of classroom session.

The first 2 videos are available in the PE Support area of the website and these videos can be shared with any teachers within your school.

New videos will be added weekly from CNSSP and other local coaches to give children a taste of different activities.

Crewe and Nantwich FA Girls Partnership

Crewe and Nantwich SSP has been lucky enough to join up with the FA and Youth Sport Trust in becoming an FA Girls Football Delivery Partner for 2020-21.

The programme aims to-

  • help create the opportunity for every girl to have equal access to football in school by 2024
  • embed a connected infrastructure to ‘mainstream’ girls’ football
  • create sustainable transformational change for a generation of females

Through being part of the partnership, primary schools will have the opportunity to access the FA Shooting Stars programme including training for teachers and resources for schools as well as local girls football festivals (restrictions permitting). Secondary schools can access the FA’s Game Of Our Own programme which will give girls the opportunity to engage in curriculum PE through football.
