Sporting Results - Autumn 2018




The new waterpolo festival was a fantastic event.  All the children had a great time and spent the best part of an hour active in the pool.  By the end, they all looked exhausted!  It was really nice to see how quickly they got the idea of the game and were developing tactics while we watched and encouraged them.  It was a pleasure to take them and a great first cluster event.



Other Sporting News....

Bamford School was very proud to have been awarded the Gold Sainsbury's School Games Award for 2015/16.   Well done to all, especially our amazing children and our fantastic parents who offer vital moral and transport support.  This is the first time we have been awarded GOLD - and we are working hard to ensure that we keep it.  A major goal is to get everyone involved in Healthy Lifestyles and to increase participation to all.
