PE Achievements

At the end of term we gathered together to celebrate our PE achievements from the year. We were delighted to again receive the news that we had achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark at GOLD level in recognition of all our PE work across the year.

The School Games, which is funded by Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a government led programme designed to deliver competitive school sport to all young people.

Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...

* Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?

* Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?

* Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?

* Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

As you can imagine we were delighted to receive the news that we have achieved the Gold award.

Many thanks to Mrs Formby, our PE lead and to Mrs Sargant, our NOSSP PE mentor, for all their hard work collating the Games Mark application and for their dedication to PE and promotion of active, healthy lifestyles across the school.

Autumn term 2020

Virtual athletics

Years 1- 6 took part in a virtual athletics competition against schools from across our cluster. Nearly 200 pupils took part, competing in 4 events.

We were really impressed with the effort of all our pupils. The five highest scoring girls and boys made up the Finmere team in each age group. Congratulations to Finmere year 1/2 coming First and Finmere year 5/6 coming Second.


Virtual Quad Kids Athletic competition

The children took part in some athletic competitions within their class bubbles. This included Sprint, Distance Run, Standing Long Jump and Tennis ball throw.
