PE and Sport Grant

Please follow link for further information on our Sports Grant -  Sports Grant 2018/19

Here at Grange we believe in trying our best to be fit and healthy; so we advocate healthy playtime snacks and lunches, providing the full PE offer during the learning time as well as offering a huge range of sports and games clubs before and after school. We also love to hear about the sporting events and achievements that the children do at the weekends and evenings. This newsletter aims to explain some of what we do and to celebrate some of our achievements.  

GOLD Sainsbury’s Games Award

We were very excited last week to hear that we had earned our Gold award. The process of applying is complex and arduous and we thank Mrs Froud for her hard work with this application as well as all the organising and coaching she has to do for us over the year.

Volunteers for sports clubs

A huge thank you must go to the staff, governors, ex-pupils and parents who volunteer over the year and enable us to provide such a wonderful choice of free activities. 

Sport Ambassadors

Each year we have two children from year six who attend sports meetings, support school PE events, write up reports and much more. We want to say a huge thank you to this year’s Ambassadors, for approaching their role so professionally and representing us so successfully.

Sports events and competitions

We do many sporting events with schools from the town for pupils from year one to six. The competitive events have winning school teams that then go on to the partnership finals. This year we have had more winning teams than ever before and then four teams that have gone on to represent the partnership at county level. Well done and thank you to all involved in playing, coaching, transporting and cheering.  

Everyone who attends sporting events (players and spectators) has a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour at all  times.

All our schools believe that sport should be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment.  Remember children's sport is a time for them to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills.  Winning isn't everything.

We expect every parent/carer/spectator to play their part in promoting positive sport by observing this Code of Conduct at all times.

Everyone must:

  • Remember that children play for FUN.
  • Applaud effort and good performance as well as success.
  • Always respect the officials' decisions.
  • Remain outside playing area and away from the event officials (referees, umpires, judges).
  • Let the teachers do their job and not confuse the children by telling them what to do.
  • Encourage their own child (and all the players) to play fairly by the rules and respect the opposition and event officials (referees, umpires, judges).
  • Avoid criticising anyone - mistakes are part of learning.  The children and officials will make mistakes.  It is never acceptable to criticise them at any time.  This is particularly important when the secondary school students are officiating, as they are the sports leaders of the future and need as much encouragement as the children do.
  • Avoid using offensive, insulting, or abusive language or behaviour and discourage others if they are behaving in this way.

If this Code of Conduct is not followed, any/all of the following actions may be taken :

You could be:

  • Issued with a verbal warning.
  • Obliged to leave the sports venue if told to by a school member of staff.
  • Requested by the school Headteacher not to attend future sports events.

                                          This Code of Conduct is agreed by the Wickford schools
