Active Schools

We are an Active School and achieved our first Active School Flag in 2017. We have a special Active Schools team who organise activities to encourage our school community to be more active.

We have been working hard in each of the four areas – P.E., Physical Activity, Partnerships and Active Schools Week. We have a webpage on each area. Click on each one to read more.

We have lots of activities in the yard at lunchtime. Our team of play leaders from 4th Class, supported by Ms. Kilkenny, set up activities for children across the school each day. We have a ball game area where children can play games like four square and dodgeball. In each of the other yards or in the hall, there are spaces to play our ‘Craze of the Week’. This might be hula hoops, skipping, parachute or music and dance.

Here are our Play Leaders for 2016-2017!

Our 3rd and 4th Classes are also active at home, as they take part in the ‘Super Troopers’ programme and have sport activities for homework!

We also have opportunities for parents and carers to get involved with active classes, including ‘Boxercise’.

Last year, our 4th Class Active Team created a Prezi presentation to explain more about becoming an Active School. Click here to have a look!
