The school provides a range of sporting activities both inside and outside the curriculum.
We also regularly offer whole school sporting activities such as ‘Wake Up, Shake Up‘ at the beginning of the school day.
Activities within P.E. and Games Lessons include:
- Games skills and team games
- Gymnastics, both floor and apparatus work
- Outdoor activities – including outdoor adventurous residential visits for Y4, Y5 and Y6 children.
- Tag Rugby
Outside the curriculum children are involved in a range of inter and intra- school sporting competitions via our School Sports Cluster Partnership that is ran with support from Durham Local Authority.
Parents sometimes assist school staff with the running of these sporting activities and transporting children to and from events and the school is most grateful for this support.
We regularly invite outside specialists into school to help in training our children in sports such as rugby, football, gymnastics, dance, tennis and cricket.
Every year in the summer term we run a ‘Fun and Fitness Week’ that incorporates school Sports Day and provides an opportunity for children to participate in a range of activities with an emphasis on participation and enjoyment with an element of competition.
