“Learning, Growing and Succeeding Together”

Sporting Achievements

We are very proud to have a dedicated sports specialist that teach the children on a weekly basis. 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 school. These activities also support their learning in the classroom and also their health and well being. We also take part in the golden mile through the meadow everyday.
