Gymnastics Competition

Monday 10th February 10 Y3/4 pupils went to St Augustines to compete in the Ribble Valley Gymnastics competition. All children had to perform a set floor routine and a vault (which the children were very excited about!). All 10 gymnasts performed beautifully and came away with amazing score for their performances. Mrs Topham is very proud of the conduct of the children both on and off the mats and would like to say a huge "WELL DONE" to each and every pupil involved. Also a massive Thankyou to all our supporters who stayed and cheered us on all afternoon.

Physical Activity Festival 

On Monday 20th January 8 Y5/6 pupils went to Roefield to participate in the Physical Activity Festival. They took part  in a Spin Class, used the Gym, learnt a Street Dance routine and enjoyed a Circuit training session. All children and staff had a great afternoon! Thankyou Ribble Valley SSP.

Sports hall Athletics 

What a night! 12 Y5/6 athletes competed in the annual Sports hall Athletics event last Thursday. Every child took part in 4 events including bot track and field events. We had some amazing performances and came in 4th, narrowly missing out on a podium place.  Well done to all the athletes you represented your school wonderfully and did it all with a smile on your faces.

Ongoing Events


We are setting each KS2 child personal challenges this year; this may be during play/lunchtimes or within their PE lessons. This is part of our Gold mark requirement for 2019/2020 and every pupil will be challenged to do activities they have never done before and/or develop skills they have to become more confident and advanced in these skills.
