PE and extra-curricular sport is one of the school’s key strengths. All children benefit from two quality PE lessons every week and we have excellent participation in our wide range of after-school sports clubs. A specialist sports coach is employed to complement our teachers and we have forged strong links with local clubs and facilities.
2019 has been a bumper year of sporting success, winning this year’s local tag rugby, cross country, dodgeball, tri-golf and multi-skills competitions. We also went on to win two events at the prestigious Black Country Games, as well as the local football league for the first time in over a decade!
We encourage all our children to lead healthy lifestyles by educating them about the importance of balanced diets and exercise.
Our provision and commitment has enabled us to achieve the Silver Sportsmark accreditation this year and we are going for gold in 2020.
