Kitemark Award

In 2015/16 the school achieved the school games Gold Kitemark. For the last academic year (2016/17) we have achieved the Silver Kitemark. We achieved this by:
• KS2 leadership in PE, examples of this were shown in sports day and taken a greater role in PE lessons.
• Participating in 8 inter school festivals in KS2.
• Promoting and participating in intra sports competitions during PE lesson in KS2.
• Communicating to the parents about sporting updates through the newsletter and website.
• Having links with external sports clubs, an example of this is Wilstead netball club.
• Providing 2 hours of PE in the curriculum for all KS2 children.

To regain the Gold Kitemark we need to increase the number of children in KS2 taking part in extracurricular clubs.
