Bamford junior children have started running/walking laps of their playground every day which they are adding together so that they will have all run 26 miles before the London Marathon day on April 21st 2024.

The infants are doing a half marathon of 13 miles.

They have all made a great start and we would like your help in supporting them by sponsoring them or getting friends/family to sponsor them. We would like to raise the money to fund equipment for the new forest schools area which we would like to get up and running asap. The PTFA have made a link for us to use to donate through.

We have have launched a new campaign called "2024 Bamford Primary School London Marathon Challenge ". We would really appreciate if you could donate whatever you can to help us reach our target!

You can donate to it by clicking the link to our Give as you Live Donate page below.

Sporting Results

Schools Mark Platinum

We have earned Platinum Status!  Well done to all involved, especially Mrs Bland, our outgoing Sports Leaders and parents.  This is a great achievement. The Sporting Calendar has been updated and regular photos and results / sports results are shared through the school DOJO site.

Personal Active Challenge!

In consultation with the Student Council, we have decided that our Spring challenge will be to walk/run 26 miles before April 21st which is London Marathon day! The council team have worked out that to do this we will need to do 8 laps of the playground every day so that we can do 2 miles a week! They are also producing a power point so that we will have London landmarks to motivate us!! We have made a class chart to track progress so hopefully it will be a fun and motivating challenge for everyone. The infants are going to try a half marathon of 13 miles.

We would like to do some fund raising alongside the event and again the Student Council have agreed that they would like to put any funds raised towards buying equipment for the new forest schools area which we hope to get up and running soon. We felt that raising between £5 and £10 was a manageable target but obviously if you can do more that would be great! We will get some sponsor forms out asap.

We hope you will help support us in our challenge and it will require children to wear, or have in school suitable footwear to run in. Thank you.

Sports Leaders! (Heroes)

Many of the sports events are supported, initiated and helped run by our Yr6 Sports Leaders.
