School Games Platinum Award

By Sport, Sporting Excellence

Today we received the excellent news that we have maintained our Platinum School Games Mark.

Here is a message from the School Games Organiser:

St Alban’s Primary excel when it comes to PE & School Sport and fully deserve their Platinum Award for 2021/22. Their offer caters for all children within their school to experience physical activity and sport at a level they are comfortable with – constantly engaging with School Games and key stakeholders to ensure maximum uptake in extra-curricular opportunities. Their commitment to those children who aren’t ready for the competitive environment has been key to their success this year, with their Sports Leaders / Council playing a massive part in ensuring their school offer is current, inclusive and engaging.

Mrs Jepson also needs recognition for her hard work with the School Games and wider physical activity opportunities – she really is the driving force behind their success and the children and staff are lucky to have her as their PE Lead. Well done Mrs J and St Alban’s!

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
