Sports Awards - Vote for us!

4th October 2018
We were delighted to receive the School of the Year Award at the West Suffolk Sports Awards; we were the first school in Suffolk to achieve the School Games Platinum Mark in July, and one of only 300 schools in the country to have been awarded this accolade, having achieved five consecutive Gold Marks. 
 
At the heart of our application for the Platinum Mark was pupil leadership: last year, we introduced ten Bronze, Silver and Gold Laureate Leadership Awards, with Sports Leaders, House Captains, Playground Buddies and other young leaders working together to organise a range of inter-house competitions and other challenges at break and lunch times.  We have also had a new, all-weather running track laid thanks to fundraising from the PTA and support from the Newmarket Festival Committee, so that pupils can complete a Daily Mile (or more) as part of our commitment to ensuring that all pupils are active for at least 60 minutes every school day. 
 
Huge credit must go to Mrs Ruth Baxter, who has driven the improvement in PE and sports provision as PE Leader over several years; and to Mr Tim Coote, who has more recently been appointed as the second PE Leader and has further improved our competitive sports provision.
