What another fantastic year of sport! This year, we have had 70% of KS2 attend clubs and 61 children represented the school in competitions. We have offered a large number of clubs this year including football, netball, tag rugby, fitness, cricket and rounders. The fitness club was led by our fantastic ambassadors who have yet again done me very proud this year, organising events, assemblies and active playtimes/lunchtimes as well as being fantastic role models for their class in sport.
Our performances in competitions this year have been phenomenal. We had 100% top 5 finishes in every competition, this included a 1st place in New Age Kurling and Tri Golf, 2nd place in hockey and a gold medal in the Year 3/4 cross country! We competed in: girls football, mixed football, netball, New Age Kurling, indoor athletics, tag rugby, hockey, 3/4 cross country, tri-golf, girls cricket, mixed cricket and rounders. We had huge successes in swimming this year from Years 3, 4 and 5 with a large number completing distances in their final swimming assessments.
We also held our first ever 5 a side football tournament, including a girls and a mixed competition. This a first for schools in Grantham and something we were very proud to do.
A huge thank you to all the parents who helped children attend events, supporting our children and our sporting events.
We were very pleased to be able to celebrate all of these fantastic performances at our Belmont Sport Personality Awards, our sports presentation evening. Within this event we had some individual awards: first of all the Walter Cobb Cup, awarded to Lily-Rose for her amazing attitude to sport, effort to improve and willingness to take part in every sport she has been asked to. We also found out our 3rd, 2nd and 1st place for the Belmont Sports Personality award, which is voted for by the children in KS2. Huge congratulations to Reegan (3rd place), McKenzie (2nd place) and Eliyana (1st place). All 3 deserved the votes and awards for their great work and effort representing the school in sport this year.
Our relationship with Inspire+ continued this year, with their coaches working with our children and taking part in opportunities like the Mini Olympics and the FA LetGirlsPlay, Ambassador visits and assemblies, Wake Up Shake Up sessions and mentoring workshops. We look forward to continuing to work with Inspire+ again next year with already lots planned in.
Thanks for your continued support and I already can’t wait to get going with sport again next year.
