Sport in our school

Rich­mond School has its very own Sports Coach ‘Eddie Fin­cham’ who works along­side Katie Fin­cham (PE Co-ordinator) to develop our cur­ricu­lum and pro­vide a range of extra-curricular activ­i­ties.

Sport is fundamental to all we do at Richmond.  We have a wide varied range of all sports activities for children to try, below is an outline of some of the activities on offer.

Activate

Every morning all of our pupils take part in ten minutes 'Activate in the Classroom' before they start work.  The activities are designed to help children become more agile, better balanced, better co-ordinated, better controlled and more precise in their movements.  Children improve their listening attention and concentration capabilities as their neurological systems also become better, fitter and faster. All children in primary school Activate classes are improving in most aspects of their physical fluency and many other benefits are being reported.  The activities are fun to do and many of the extensions are curriculum linked.

Active Lunchtimes

At Rich­mond Pri­mary School we are a pio­neer­ing school for Active Lunchtimes.  Dur­ing lunchtimes chil­dren from years 2,5 and 6 are trained as young sports lead­ers, these chil­dren then run a vari­ety of activ­i­ties for the rest of the school to take part in.  These may include skip­ping, jug­gling, cheer­lead­ing, ten­nis and many more.  Chil­dren are also encour­aged to make up their own games with our ‘Huff n Puff’ equipment.

Healthy Lifestyle Energy Sports and Nutrition Club

This club aims to engage children who may not normally enjoy taking part in physical activity, who may not usually take part in sport outside of PE lessons, who lack in confidence or who may have health barriers to participate. 

After School Clubs

Richmond have a range of sports clubs to offer children every night after the normal school day.  Please see the Extra Curriculum tab for details.

School Games

What is the Sainsbury’s School Games?

The Sainsbury’s School Games is a unique oppor­tu­nity to moti­vate and inspire mil­lions of young peo­ple across the coun­try to take part in more com­pet­i­tive school sport.

The Games are made up of three lev­els of activ­ity: com­pe­ti­tions held in schools between schools at county/area level and a national event for the most tal­ented young peo­ple in the UK:

• Intra-school
(Level 1)
— sport­ing com­pe­ti­tion for all stu­dents in school through intra-school competition.

Inter-school (Level 2) — indi­vid­u­als and teams are selected to rep­re­sent their schools in local inter-school competitions.

Sainsbury’s School Games Fes­ti­vals (Level 3) – the county/area will stage multi-sport Sainsbury’s School Games Fes­ti­vals as a cul­mi­na­tion of year-round school sport competition.

The Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games a national multi-sport event where the most tal­ented young peo­ple in the UK will be selected to com­pete in our sport­ing venues.

Tak­ing part in these helps towards the Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark

The Sainsbury’s School Games Kitemark is a Gov­ern­ment led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their com­mit­ment to the devel­op­ment of com­pe­ti­tion across their school and into the com­mu­nity. Schools in Eng­land are able to assess them­selves across bronze, sil­ver and gold lev­els of the Kitemark.

 

2014-2015 we achieved Gold for the second time.

2013–2014 we are pleased to say we achieved Gold standard.

2012-2013 we achieved the Bronze award.
