It is clear to see that there is some fantastic work going on across the Arches SSP schools to develop the level of high quality PE and School Sport. Many of our schools are showing brilliant examples of how to develop staff, levels of participation and competitive opportunities for pupils and parents in their community. We have this year had the opportunity to nominate schools for the South Yorkshire Primary Sports Premium Awards to celebrate the hard work that takes place on a daily basis. There were a high number of nominations from across the county.
Marlcliffe Primary School were chosen as the winner of the category for Increasing the Chance for Competetive Opportunities. This is a fantastic award and one that the school and Miss Butcher deserve for their continued hard work to ensure that all children represent school at a certain activity throughout their time at school. Competition is embedded within the school which helps the level of participation throughout the academic year and parental support is crucial in providing all opportunities. The school have been invited to attend the Yorkshire Awards in June for a chance to win the regional round. We would like to congratulate Marlcliffe school and wish them good luck in the next round.
