Sport Initiatives


It is our mission to get more young people active in school sports. By giving them relatable role models such as their teachers it may help them reach more realistic goals and pathways.

#WhyCan’tYou is a social media driven initiative in which we encourage all staff and students to take part in.

Daily Mile

The aim of the Daily Mile is to improve physical, social, emotional mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances. It consists of children running or jogging at their own pace with friends for 15 minutes every day.

Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark

The Youth Sport Trust Quality Mark is an online self-review tool aligned to Ofsted guidance which provides school with a nationally recognised badge of excellence for P.E and school sport.

We are delighted to say that our Core P.E programme (in its first academic year of delivery) has achieved the Bronze Quality Mark, which we are very proud of. We will however continue to improve and push Core P.E within our whole school curriculum and strive for outstanding provision.
