Competition Time!

 Leicestershire Cricket club are creating a competition for all children. They are asking children to design a new t-shirt for their mascot, Charlie Fox. The winning design will be sent off to their suppliers and the t-shirt will be given to Charlie Fox to wear! In addition, the t-shirts will be put in the shop and any money received from them will be donated to our fantastic NHS.

Sport in our school

Richmond School has its very own Sports Coach, Mr Fin­cham who works alongside Miss Grayson (PE Coordinator), Mr Pallet and Miss Griffiths ,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 variety of sports activities for children to try, below is an outline of some of the activities on offer.


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.

Big Moves Fundamental Movement programme

This is being developed in our Early Years setting, alongside Bike Ability.

This year, 2019/2020 we are developing a link with Hinckley Rugby Club who are coming into school to deliver rugby taster sessions for children. Also the children will have the opportunity, as the year progresses to take part in match day activities at Hinckley Rugby Club.


Active Lunchtimes

At Rich­mond Pri­mary School we are a pio­neer­ing school for Active Lunchtimes.  Dur­ing lunchtime, children 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.  

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.

For more information on the challenge, please visit:

LRS and BBC Radio Leicester have jointly launching an activity challenge called ‘Active Foxes’, utilising the SportSuite Activity Tracker on the LRS website. The aim of the challenge is for the people of Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland to log a total of 515 hours of activity (at home or by following guidelines on social distancing) by the 2nd May (the number of hours that it took LCFC’s regular 11 players to win the Premier League on that date in 2016).
