Welcome to our Sports Page!
After another very successful year of being awarded School Games Award Gold for 2018-2019 we continue to increase the variety of school sports clubs and competitions available. In the academic year September 2019 to March 2020 we introduced archery, yoga, judo, fencing, handball, ninja warriors and cheerleading into our sporting calendar of clubs.
From March 2020 until March 2021, we stopped our extra-curricular sporting club calendar due to Covid-19, guidance from the government and AfPE. However, in April 2021, we began to introduce sporting clubs back into our curriculum; Y6 archery, Y5 football, Y6 football and Y6 netball. Our aim now is to return to our normal programme of sports as soon as we can safely do so.
We continue to have the support from Sportscubed and the wider community to coach our after school clubs.
