School Sports Blog! 

Please click on the link below to view our school sports blog, which highlights all of the events we have entered this year.

The blog is written and published by the children on the committee. 

School Sports Committee

Over the course of this year, we have decided to set-up and organise a School Sports Committee, which is tasked with improving the level of sports provision for our children. 

The Committee consists of one boy and one girl from years 6, 5 and 4. The members are as follows: 

Rebecca Proctor 

Liam Painter

Nanyce Roberts

Jamie Hawtin 

Emma Eastwood 

Edward Harrison 

They are tasked with surveying their fellow pupils to find out how we can improve the sporting experiences in our school. They also monitor, edit and publish our school sports blog to celebrate the successes of our pupils. 


Radio 2's 500 Words Competition Winner Beth Grierson


Year 5 pupil Beth Grierson has been selected as one of our top 50 stories from our Radio 2 500 Words Competition.  Beth's story, "The Astonishing Diary of a Depressed Sheep", has been selected from 120,421 entries and made it to the final 50.  Beth will now travel to London to the Palace at the end of May where the final winner will be announced.

We are incredibly proud of Beth's achievement and wish her well at the final!  If you would like to listen to Beth's story it has been narrated by the Radio Drama Company and can be read or listened to on now.



Young Voices


On Wednesday 4th March we had the pleasure of joining one of the largest school choirs in the world at the Young Voices concert at the Manchester Phone 4 U arena.  We all had an amazing time and enjoyed performing in front of a huge audience. All the staff were extremely proud of the children. Here are some photographs from the night. We even had time for a few selfies! 

Reindeer Run


Children boogied to Christmas tunes to raise money for Brian House Hospice. They enjoyed their flashing noses and jingling antlers - and raised over £500!!
