PE and school sports are a focal point that can be used to define our school’s culture and they are paramount in developing and reinforcing our school’s ethos-instilling our pupils with MAGIC Habits! Our pupils are engaged in a rich, broad and balanced curriculum and a wide range of extracurricular PE and sports programme which provides them with ample opportunities to challenge themselves within the school and against their peers in other primary schools.
As from the start of 2017/18 academic year, our school was awarded The Gold Sports Mark, gold being the highest accolade for primary schools.
This is an acknowledgment and celebration of our PE and sports provision. Below are highlights of what our pupils have recently achieved.
