We have been awarded the Bronze School Games Mark for our commitment to sport in school.
PE, Sports & Competitions

A Life Healthy Workshops
This week we reminded ourselves that it is important to keep our bodies as fit and healthy as our minds! A Life – who specialise in talking to children about fitness and a healthy lifestyle - came to run workshops with each of our classes. Our younger classes took part in some fun fitness games in the hall and our older classes got to try new skills such as boxing as they did circuit training.
