We have been adjudged the Chance to Shine Primary School of the year.
This is a national award that we were nominated for last month, out of around 3500 schools who had the cricket coaching in the last year. We are all immensely proud to have national recognition of what we offer. We found out at a ceremony at Lord's cricket ground in London that we were the winners. Photos of the evening are shared in our gallery (link below). Our story was also shared through BBC South East Today - the video is also on the gallery page.
We hosted Chance to Shine cricket coaching sessions for all of our Key Stage 2 pupils in Term 6 last year and Term 1 this year. All of the pupils had an hour of coaching each week, additional to our normal curriculum content. Jamie, our Chance to Shine coach also provided extra leadership training for our Sports Leaders, who were enabled to lead parts of or whole sessions at lunchtime.
