Gold 'Games Mark'
In September 2015 we were awarded the Sainsbury’s Gold Level ‘Games Mark’. We previously held the bronze and silver awards but we have been upgraded this year. This is down to the numbers of children attending sports clubs, representing the school in tournaments and completing a wide range of games and PE activities here in school. We are grateful to Mrs Atkinson for coordinating our tournaments and teams and also to Mrs Plumpton, Mrs Austin, Miss Nellar, Mrs Maggs and all the other staff who give up their own time to take all of our lunchtime and after-school clubs and to take children and teams to participate in local and regional tournaments. The upgrading of the award is a reflection of everybody’s commitment. Thank you and well done to everyone!
Our 'PE & Sport Premium Action Plan' was updated in April 2016:
Children at Kilham already have lots of opportunities to take part in physical activity both in and out of school.
Personal achievements inside and out of school are already celebrated on a regular basis through achievement assemblies and sports displays. From this, we will also identify children that do not attend an organised sports club, after-school activity or lesson regularly, putting us in a better position to provide more targeted opportunities for those children to be active alongside others. We will continue to think of other ways to get as many children as possible active. We will also be applying for the Sainsbury’s ‘Silver’ Games Mark. More details to follow.
