Sports

We have fantastic sports provision both in PE lessons and extra curricular opportunities. We regularly enter teams and individuals to compete in Tag Rugby, Football, Netball, Cross Country, Hockey, Tennis, Athletics, Golf and Swimming.

We are incredibly proud of all the children who take part in these events and thankful for the parents who support us, as without parents consent for their children to attend and arranging for them to be taken and collected from events we would not be able to participate.

Please bear in mind that if your child has been chosen to participate parents are relied on for their transport to and from the event.

Well done to all of the children and parents involved in sporting activities last year. Due to the number of children taking part in clubs and tournaments we have achieved the School Games Silver Award!
