It has been a sporting year to remember for North Wootton Community Primary School.

On Thursday, the whole school took part in a celebration of sports day event.

Year 5 and 6 children were instrumental in the success of the day, putting into practice the skills they have learnt this year through the Young Leaders Programme.

With the support and guidance from Miss Kenny, pupils came up with ideas, planned their activities and ran 10 different sporting stations, offering each group of children in the school the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sporting fun.

The day was a culmination of a really successful year of sports for the school.

Since September, they have used 5,540 spaces in their wide range of after-school sporting clubs, including football, multi-sports, athletics, tag rugby, tennis, netball, music and movement, dance aerobics, cricket, basketball and cycling.

They have also been recognised as the most engaged school within the West Norfolk School Sport Partnership, providing 472 spaces for children to take part in sporting competitions and qualifying to represent West Norfolk at six county finals.

In the English Schools Athletics Association Awards Scheme, run by Mr Edwards, 29 pupils picked up awards.

As well as providing sporting opportunities for pupils, both inside and outside the school, North Wootton have also used sports as a platform to raise funds for Cancer Research UK, holding their own Race for Life event in early July, which has raised an amazing £3,318!

The event saw youngsters complete laps around the school field, dressed in pink or blue.

Thanks to the dedication and commitment of the staff, the School Sport Partnership and the after-school providers, the school are proud of the children’s continued success.
