Sport and PE play a massive role in the lives of children, helping them be fitter, healthier, happier and more alert. It is proven to raise academic standards, improve social skills and boost attendance. Our school is excellent in this and so many other areas and as always we are striving for even greater success.
Well done to all the children and staff that made this a brilliant year for PE and Sport at our school!
