Previous Events

Sport Relief March 2018

On Friday 23rd March we held a federation wide ‘come dressed sporty’ day in aid of Sport Relief 2018. The children came to school wearing sports wear from trainers and football shirts, to rugby tops, cricket kit and gymnastics leotards, the children looked fantastic – well done. Through donations we managed to raise a brilliant £298.95 at the Infant School and over £300 at the Junior School.

We had been practising the song ‘Step It Up For Sport Relief’ at the Infant School during our singing assembly times and the children learnt the actions to go with the chorus as well as helping to make up actions to the rest of the song. The whole school, from Nursery to Year 2, came together on Friday morning for a mass performance of the song. It was truly amazing to see all the children joining in and being active.

We always like to try and help others in our school. take a look at some of the ways we have done this.
