“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Sporting Achievements

We are very proud to have two dedicated sports specialists that teach the children weekly. This provides the children with skills and expertise to help them stay fit and healthy alongside learning new skills and working as a team.

Our KS2 pupils have the chance to enter tournaments throughout the year in sports such as Football, Netball, Hockey, Cricket, Cross Country running and Athletics .  The school has developed a thriving team system which involves pupils of all year groups playing competitive sports against each other including all those mentioned above plus Rounders, Handball and Table Tennis. By having a balance of sports and opportunities we are able to allow all children to access sport at their own level and capability. 

Development of the children's gross motor skills and physical abilities are also developed through our learning outside the classroom and Forest schools. These activities also support their learning in the classroom and also their health and well being.
