Children also receive extra lessons with their class teachers and through staff CPD (see below).
Intra-school competitions occur throughout the year in PE lessons, sports days and inhealthy week. In PE lessons, all children compete in modified games and activities to improve their knowledge of rules, develop teamwork and to promote competition. We have 4 houses that can be used in intra-school competition and form the basis for our sports day:
Many of the following competitions have up to 4 rounds.
Round 1: Cluster competition
Round 2: Partnership competition
Round 3: City Finals
Round 4: South Yorkshire Finals.
