Despite some controversy, issues with the scoring and some less than sportsmanlike behaviour from some of the other teams, we are pleased to report that our Y5&6 children once again made us feel exceptionally proud at the dodgeball tournament today. Their behaviour and effort was exemplary and one of our teams came joint first in their league while the other team came second in their league. Well done everyone! Thanks too to Mr Gorner and Mrs Walton for supporting and encouraging the children too.
Another great tournament today as this time our Y1/2 relay athletes did us proud again. Out of 28 teams, we came second and third..another great achievement!
Congratulations to Class 1 and Class 8 who are our PE Champions for the Autumn Term. Fantastic work :)
Our Year 5/6 pupils did a fantastic job at the Team Active athletic tournament last week.
All of our amazing children demonstrated a wonderful attitude and encouraged each other to excel.
Good luck to the two winning teams in the upcoming Barnsley final.
Another fantastic performance from our school today as our Y1/2 Netball teams won every game they played to be crowned the Barnsley champions! 15 teams took part in this tournament, sports like netball, basketball, hockey are elite sports..because it takes great skill, technique and organisation to excel at them, and we did that in droves....and much more!
In the KS2 individual cross country final we took 15 children and everyone of them came in the top 30 which is a great achievement! One special mention though to one of our Year 3 girls who came 4th overall, the highest place we’ve ever had at a cross country final! She came so close to winning it outright but just got out sprinted on the final straight, but we think she can go even faster next year!
Congratulations to Class 3 and Class 7 who are the first winners of the sports trophy this year :) Fabulous skills, team work, listening to and following instructions and a great attitude to PE helped them achieve the most points. Well done.
Our sporting success continues with these superstars. Well done!
Today this group of KS1 children went to Shafton for a multi-skills tournament and for many it was their first time representing the school at competition level. We are absolutely delighted that both teams gave 100% and secured gold and silver. What an amazing achievement. Well done!

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.

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!
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.

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.
