School Sports & PE
The children look fantastic in the new school PE kit.
At Gorseybrigg we provide a wide range of sporting opportunities for all children.
This year we have joined up with the North East Derbyshire SHAPE partnership to help provide our school sport competition calendar. SHAPE provide a locally based and meaningful competition structure, rich professional development opportunities for all staff, specialist support for curriculum development, established links to community clubs as well as health and wellbeing, leadership and enrichment programmes.
SHAPE are a longstanding, not for profit, education based provider of Physical Education, school sport and physical activity. The network is unique as it is integrated within both primary and secondary schools across the area with over 70 years’ combined expertise for delivering high quality PE, school sport and physical activity. They have links to National Governing Bodies, Public Health England, the Local Authority, Youth Sport Trust, Sport England, Department for Transport and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Together, with the Partnership, we are continually striving to provide a relevant, suitable and vibrant PE, school sport, physical activity, health and wellbeing offer for all young people. As an ethical partnership, we promote a strong, positive and sustainable approach to Physical Education, school sport and physical activity, allowing every child the opportunity to be involved. Our offer will meet the key performance indicators of the PE and Sport Premium funding grant, have a positive impact on the whole school agenda but more importantly, foster a holistic approach to each child and their development.
Year 5 Cricket June 2021
On Wednesday 23rd June, 8 year 5 children took part in the inaugural children's kwik cricket competition at Hundall cricket club. Sixteen teams from the area took part, most being Y6 children. The children started the day excited but nervous as they were playing older children. However, our team played fantastically during the morning which meant that they qualified for the afternoon session. Having again played amazingly they cam second in their mini league at the end of the afternoon.
They were hugely disappointed though, as by this time they wanted to win the whole competition! As we were leaving after a long but brilliant day of cricket, we were approached by one of the officialswho said that although we hadn't won the tournament, the members of Hundall CC agreed that our team were the most enthusiastic, most supportive of their team during matches, best behaved and smartest turned out. I think that actually made our team the winners!
