We have recently been awarded the School Games Gold Award! Here are some of the reasons why...
 
Football
 
Boys team won the league not losing a game or conceding a goal.
·         Reached the Finals at the King Power Stadium
·         Played 4 games and won all 4.
·         Unfortunately lost in the final on penalties!
 
We also entered The Rice Bowl tournament for the first time and reached the Quarter Finals! This is a wonderful achievement from the team!
 
Our girls team did not enter a league but have played a number of fixtures against schools. Their progression has been fantastic to see and their positive attitudes rub off on each other.
 
Triathlon
 
10 pupils from year 4,5 & 6 represented our school in our first ever Triathlon. This consisted of an 800m cycle, 300m run and a 50m swim.

30 pupils took part in the annual Cross Country event held at Knighton Park. Great determination and resilience was needed to complete the 1,400m run.

The big one! We had a brilliant time at the annual Athletics event held at Saffron Lane. This year we had a record number of children qualify for the finals. We finished the day with 2 medals; A Gold medal in the year 4 50m sprints and a Bronze medal in the year 4 boys relay race.

SEN Athletics
 
Boccia
 
SEN Football
 

Campione! Campione! Ole! Ole! Ole! Every Friday after school eight children from mainstream and the Learning Zone have been drilling, dribbling and driving the ball into the back of the net. Fit and firing, these heroes travelled to Holmstead Park (where Leicester City’s U21s play and train) and lay waste to every team put against them. Top Scoring, Clean sheets… there was not an award that this team did not walk away with. The boys want to say a thanks to Andy their coach for all his hard work throughout the year.
