PE Silver Award

Over the last year we have been successful in increasing participation in sports not only for training but also for competitions.  We have also achieved considerable success in these competitions.   This has been facilitated largely by Mr Bailey who often has given up his own time to attend events.  Also many other members of staff have run after-school clubs for training and participating in leagues.  We have used the grant to allow teachers to be released from school times to take children to events.  However much of the success relies on teachers volunteering their time.  We also have a very supportive group of parents who help coach and have youth coaching qualifications.  To all these people we are extremely grateful as their commitment offers fantastic experiences to the children.

As recognition of all this success we were awarded the School Games Silver Mark for Schools.  This year we will work towards a gold award.Silver logo PE school
