Our Year 5/6 athletics team took part in the first Level 2 School Games competition of the school year. We had a great morning at the Louisa Centre, the team took silver medals and narrowly missed on gold by only 4 points. Well done to everyone who took part, we look forward to next year as the majority of our team were year 5 children.
Catchgate Primary School has a rich history of sporting success. We take part in a wide range of inter school sports organised by both our local associations and the local School Sport Partnership. We aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for children to be active and experience as many new sporting activities as possible during curriculum time and as part of after school clubs. We provide two hours of high quality Physical Education in all classes across the school and are committed to ensuring that our staff are constantly developing their skills to do this.
We have a great P.E. team at school - Mr Shaw, Mrs Carlyon, Miss Jarvis,and our sports apprentices Miss McGee now a Level 3 Apprentice and Miss Kirton who joined our team in April 2017. Staff are very knowledgeable, experienced and committed to providing a range of sporting opportunities during the school day and beyond.
