As a Sports Council we live out our school’s mission statement by showing love for the other pupils in the school, being good role models for them and by helping them to become the best that they can be by developing the talents that God has given them for sports.
Meet this year’s Sports Council. It is made up of two children from each year group from Year 1 to year 6. They meet regularly with Mrs Annis to put forward their ideas on how to develop and improve PE and sport in our school.
The Sports Council members are chosen by the children in their class. One boy and one girl represent each class with extra members from Year 6.
The Sports Council have been involved in running many Sports Competitions and Festivals throughout the Year.

Last year the School Council organised and ran a sponsored fitness day, led by GB athlete Meghan Beesley, which raised £1200. Half of the money raised went to support the GB athletics team and the Sports Council spent the rest on PE equipment that they chose from the Sport for Schools organisation catalogue. The event inspired all the pupils at the school and were very motivated by Meghan’s motto: “Don’t worry that your best won’t be good enough. Have a go at everything, don’t quit, try your hardest and you will have no regrets.”
