We entered an A and B team today at Outwood Academy, Shafton and the A team were victorious beating 14 teams and coming first! Our B team also did our school proud as we had some children competing in a tournament for the very first time!

Our Y3/4 Benchball team won 7 out of 7 to win the Barnsley Benchball Championship! A total of 18 teams took part at Outwood Academy, Carlton and we won every game! We are very proud of you.

The Y5/6 footballers did really well. By winning 2 and losing 1, they came second in their group and have qualified for the Barnsley schools final!


As our Y3/4 tag rugby team are the Barnsley champions, they were invited to compete at the South Yorkshire Summer Schools Games. They had an amazing day. They came third overall out of ten teams which means they are now the third best Y3/4 tag rugby team in South Yorkshire. They should feel very proud :)

End of Year Sports Assembly

This week we had our end of year sports award assembly. We have now have four teams who hold the Barnsley champions titles in the following sports:Y1/2 netball; Y5/6 dodgeball; Y3/4 tag ruby and Y5/6 benchball. We are proud of these children and all the children who have attended matches this year both in and out of school, not only because of their sporting talents but because they always display outstanding behaviour, they work together as a team and they are gracious when they lose and win. Well done to you all. We would also like to say well done to both Mr Gorner and Miss Shaw who through their many clubs and PE lessons have developed the talent in school from FS1 to Y6.

Y1/2 Barnsley Netball Tournament

This was the first ever Year 1/2 Barnsley Netball Tournament and our school once again exceeded even our expectations by winning every game. They showed passion, skill, teamwork, awareness and also they were gracious in victory by helping some of the other pupils.
They won their games 10-0, 12-0, 11-0 and 7-0 in the final. However, the main point that stood out today was their overall enjoyment of the game as they got the chance to show off the skills that they have developed since Nursery to other schools.

This term's Inter School Sports winners this term are Class 3 and Class 8.

Congratulations to these amazing athletes for their efforts this afternoon at the Team Activ tournament. Out of 9 schools they came second in the field events and fourth overall. Their behaviour, as ever, was exemplary and they were a credit to the school. Well done everyone!

 A while ago we had two teams that won their respective qualifying event to gain entry into the Y5/6 Barnsley Netball Finals. This took place today at Penistone Grammar. Our B team played very well but the standard was really high so they did not win enough to get through to the final. The A team  played magnificently, winning 4 and just losing 1. In their final game they had to beat High View by five clear baskets to win the league overall. Despite their frantic efforts as they produced attack after attack, they were just one point away from being the Y5/6 Barnsley netball champions!

Well done to you all for playing so well - we are VERY PROUD of you all.
In the netball competition, we entered three teams. Two of the three won all their games in their league and therefore qualify for the Barnsley school finals in May. Brilliant!

March 31st - What a brilliant day! Our Y3/4 tag rugby team won the Barnsley Finals Tournament at Shaw Lane by winning every game. They will now go onto represent Barnsley in the South Yorkshire Finals in Sheffield in July!
We are very proud of them!

March 17 - Well done to the Y5/6 Basketball Team who won their league and made it to the semi-finals. It ended 2:2 so it had to go to extra time. Despite playing well, they lost 2:1 so overall they came third. We are very proud of you all. 

March 17 - During the qualifying rounds of the Y5/6 tag rugby, our teams came third and fifth. Well done to you all. 

March 17 - The Y5/6 basketball team demonstrated great skill and team work when they played Churchfields Primary in a few matches last week. Overall they won 34:28. BRILLIANT!

February 17 - Class 7 and Class 1 are the proud winners of Mr Gorner's Sports Cup this half term. They have worked well as a team and individually, they have listened well and they have tried hard to develop new skills. Well done, especially to Class 7 who were last in the autumn term.

Benchball Champions - We entered two Y5/6 teams and both played really well. One team won two and lost one game so they just missed out on the quarter finals. The other team won all three games - They won the quarters 5 - 1, the semi-finals 8 - 0 and the final 4 - 3. This makes us the BARNSLEY BENCHBALL CHAMPIONS :) 

March 17 Cross Country - After qualifying for the heats before Christmas, fifteen children made it through to the individual finals. Three finished 18th in their final category and the rest finished in the top thirty in their category. It is such an achievement as three years ago we only had one child in the final. Well done to you all. 

January 17 - Y3/4 basketball finals. 12 teams played and we came 3rd overall. This is best we've done in Y3/4 basketball- brilliant.
