We are proud to be part of the Sainsburys Schools Games network and to have been awarded the highest Gold Level for our sporting achievements and participation in 2015/16.
From September 2013 the Department for Education is providing funding to every primary school to ensure there is a clear legacy for young people from the 2012 London Olympics. This is intended to:
- Provide pupils with access to high quality sports coaching
- Enable pupils to experience a wider range of sports
- Widen pupil participation in sport
- Widen participation in competitive sports
- Create a sustainable legacy for sport within the primary school
Miss Gilhooley is leading this initiative along with the PE team
