We are delighted to say that we have again been successful in our submission for the School Games Gold award!
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
Schools need to demonstrate how they are/have:
- maintaining and growing your school’s engagement in the School Games and your delivery of 60 active minutes for every child
- create positive experiences by ensuring physical activity and competition provision is designed to reflect the motivation, competence and confidence of your young people and has a clear intent
- a clear focus on transition points and how secondary schools engage in the School Games
- create positive experiences to support character development of targeted young people
- advocated to key stakeholders how the School Games makes a meaningful difference to the lives of children and young people, including engaging and educating parents.

Thank you to all who were able to support our sports days. The weather was kind to us and a great time was had by all. Thank you also to the PTA for providing the children with a much deserved and welcomed ice lolly, after all their hard work. The combined house scores for sports day in ascending order were:
Terry – 69 points
Rowntree – 92 points
Tuke – 104 points
Making Craven house the overall winners with a huge 155 points! Congratulations to all representing Craven house!
Just a little reminder that sports days are coming up. Please could you ensure that children have PE kits in school for these days, a coloured t-shirt (house colour if possible) and, particularly if the weather looks hot, water bottles, sun hats and sun cream.

Congratulations to our KS2 cricketers on their very convincing win at the Y3/4 Cricket festival yesterday. They have now qualified to compete in the North Yorkshire finals, which will take place next Tuesday at York Cricket Club. We wish them all the very best!
We hope you enjoy this slideshow of photographs from the fantastic triathlon event last week!
A huge thank you to all the children who took part in the Mini Brownlee Triathlon on Wednesday at York Sport. The weather was kind to us and the sun shone brightly…perfect conditions to experience what it feels like to undertake a triathlon…on a much smaller scale!
48 children from KS2 took part from Dunnington but over 1200 pupils from across the city were involved throughout the day. They started in the pool swimming 75m, went quickly to their own clothes basket and put on their t-shirt and trainers. A quick exit of the side door, whilst handing their basket to a member of pool staff and then onto 800m of biking round a slalom course on the grass. Once completed they ran 300m to a glorious cheer and a well-deserved goodie bag and a bottle of water.
All the children demonstrated great resilience and had huge smiles on their faces as they took part. They cheered each other on in between mouthfuls of popcorn, whilst recovering and were a pleasure to take out of school. There was roughly 8 minutes to get changed in our allotted time slot and the girls narrowly beat the boys! Many thanks to the parents who accompanied us to ensure things ran smoothly. I hope we might have a few keen future triathletes in the making after gaining an insight into this amazing event.Mrs Rowntree
