Growth with Progress
Elmsett are committed to the vision that "All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport".
We have put in place a range of sporting activities to challenge and teach the children new skills as well as providing the opportunity for competition at school, pyramid schools and county level. We hold various school level competitions and events and activities such as the Sport Relief Mile. We take part in many inter-school and Hadleigh pyramid events at Hadleigh High school and other primary schools. We host the Small Schools XC Run each year in March for year 3 and 4 children.
In KS2 the children have the opportunity to have swimming lessons at Hadleigh Swimming Pool - Owls in the Autumn Term and Badgers in the Spring Term - and the older children are selected to compete in the Pyramid Schools Swimming Gala in February each year.
We also offer extra-curricular sporting activities including, Multi-Sports, Gymnastics, Running, Netball, Dance and Football before school, at lunchtimes and after school. We also had British Cycling coaches in to take KS2 for a series of cycling lessons.
We also take advantage of external activities to provide additional opportunities for the children. Last year we took a team of children to participate in the TATA Kids of Steel Triathlon at the Olympics Park in London, and also a group of the running club took part in the Hadleigh Hares 2k Fun Run – and they all did really well too!
Sports Day is fun for the whole school and the children have the opportunity to compete both individually and as a team in a range of themed events.
