Chesterfield Area- Links to local sports clubs

We believe that all children should find a way to be active that suits them. Physical activity is so important for our health and well being and we always strive to make the school day as active as we can for all children.

Below, we have included contact details for local sports clubs that may be of interest, should you wish to inquire further about sports opportunities for your child(ren).

We hope this will be helpful in giving children opportunities to lead an active lifestyle.

School Games Afternoon 2019

Our Bronze Young Ambassadors will be organising another exciting School Games afternoon, where Junior children will get to try out lost of sports and games and play in fun competitions against each other. Last year was a great success so we're looking forward to a new event in June 2019! (18th June TBC)

Beth Dobbin

This morning (Monday 21st May), we had a visit from Team GB athlete, Beth Dobbin. She completed fitness circuits with every class and then told us about her career as a 200m sprinter. The children did a great job raising sponsorship money and putting their all into the exercises. It was inspiring to hear about the challenges that Beth has overcome and it's a great encouragement to us all to keep going when life gets tough! Children also asked Beth some great questions and now we're all determined to get active and healthy.  Well done everyone!

School Football Team 2018-19
