Ethos 

As an inclusive school we encourage all children to try out a range of sports through their PE lessons, school events and our extra-curricular clubs. We encourage all children to recognise that through sport they can learn and live the Olympic Values, which are:

  • respect - fair play; knowing one's own limits; taking care of one's health and the environment
  • excellence - how to give the best of oneself, on the field of play or in life; taking part; and progressing according to one's own objectives
  • friendship - how, through sport, to understand each other despite any differences 


    Inter-School and Intra-School Teams

    Each year we participate in dozens of inter-school (against other schools) and intra-school (between Foulds houses) events. Children compete in a number of sports including football, tag-rugby, athletics, cross-country, cricket, netball, gymnastics and cheerleading. We have Y1,2,3,4,6 and Girls teams and enter multiple teams into some competitions to create as many opportunities as possible across both Key Stages. We also involve pupils in leadership programmes such as 'Bronze Ambassadors', 'Huff&Pufff' and 'Playground Buddies', enter non-competitive events such as 'Dancefest' and 'Artsfest' and organise inter-school and intra-school events which involve all children such as KS1&KS2 Sports Days and the Y6 Micro-marathon.

    Inter-School and Intra-School Team Selection

    Children may, at times, be selected to represent the school at a competitive fixture. Children are selected according to criteria such as ability, attitude and consistency of performance. Where possible, we also hold open trials in PE lessons or after school in order for all children to try out for teams and events.

    We further aim to increase participation by having B and C teams for some inter-school events, plus arrange popular events such as Inter-House Football, Netball and Gymnastics to include more children. We also take part in events that involve all children such as Sports Day and the Year 6 Marathon.

    Whilst we endeavour to offer opportunities to as many children as possible, when it comes to competitive fixtures, team places are often limited, and it is made clear that being in a club does not guarantee selection for the school team. Team selection can sometimes be bittersweet in that whilst some children are proud of being chosen, others are disappointed; in all areas of life we will encounter disappointments as well as successes and it is important that children learn resilience. We hope therefore children enjoy their clubs and PE lessons first and foremost - both the social aspect and developing their sporting ability. Selection for a team should be treated as a welcome bonus to this.
