PE and School Sport
Great News - for the second time we are delighted to announce that we have achieved the Platinum Kitemark award as recognition for our dedication to school sport and PE. Very few schools nationally achieve this award so it is a great accolade to the amazing achievements of our pupils in this area of the curriculum.
This year we continue to provide a wealth of opportunities for our pupils in PE and school sport. Every week, children will have 2 hours of PE (one indoor and one outdoor). We are also privileged to be working with different sports coaches who will come in and work alongside teachers to promote and enhance our delivery of PE and to allow the children amazing opportunities in a range of sports.
Please help to ensure that your child has appropriate PE kits which include a white t-shirt and dark shorts. Suitable trainers/plimsoles must also be worn.
We really encourage children to compete in sport outside school so please help us to celebrate their successes by bringing in certificates, medals or trophies to Achievement Assemblies on a Friday.
Our successes so far this year.....
Our girls football team did really well in the district competition. It was great to see so many girls wanting to play football.
