Sports Day

By Corona - Covid19 Virus, Sport, Sporting Excellence

Last night we received further guidance from the DFE about sports days.

School have considered the guidance and also the fact that we have had a recent bubble closure, and decided to NOT invite parents to sports day.

We are disappointed that parents will not be part of our sports days, but we must prioritise staying open and minimise the risk of infection.

Mrs Cooper is an excellent photographer, and has agreed to take take photos of the children to share on class dojo.

Thank you,

Mrs Gurner

By Community, Corona - Covid19 Virus, Mental Health, Sporting Excellence

Our school is getting involved in an exciting community challenge called Beat the Street. On Friday we will send home fobs, maps and leaflets with the children.

Beat the Street is a challenge across Rotherham where local schools, workplaces and community groups compete to see who can walk, run, cycle and scoot the furthest by the end of the game.

Find Beat Boxes around your area and hover your contactless fob to earn points for your team and help win hundreds of pounds worth of prizes. Playing the game is easy, just follow these simple steps:

1, Register your fob online at to join your chosen team.

2, Find your nearest Beat Box and hover your fob until it beeps and flashes.

3, Walk, run, cycle and scoot to a different Beat Box within an hour. Hover your fob to earn 10 points.

4, Carry on your journey to score 10 points for each extra Beat Box you visit.

Please see the attached powerpoint for further information.
