We have maintained our Gold Status. Well done to all involved, especially Mrs Bland, our outgoing Sports Leaders and parents. This is a great achievement, despite the interruptions of COVID 19. Watch out for our new After School Sports Clubs this Spring Term. The Sporting Calendar has been updated and regular photos and results / sports results are shared through the school DOJO site.
This half term we are focusing on Core Fitness.
Sports Leaders! (Heroes)
Many of the sports events are supported, initiated and helped run by our Yr6 Sports Leaders.
A huge thanks to Mrs Bland for organising our second whole school fitness event. The Run the Batton Challenge has been a huge success and has helped everyone (pupils, staff and families) to 'up their activity levels' following the Christmas and New Year break.
Please remember to pay in any Sponsorship Money - we will soon update you with the total amount raised.
