Gold for Lowerplace!

We’re proud to report that Lowerplace has achieved Gold in the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark for the 2016-17 school year – the second year in a row!

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

With so many of our children competing in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.

We look forward to applying once again in 2018!

Sports Day – postponed until Tuesday 18th July

Based on today’s weather and the forecast for tomorrow, we have made the decision to postpone Sports Day.

We will now be holding Sports Day 2017 on Tuesday 18th July and as usual the day will be split by year groups.

Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 will compete in the morning, starting at 9:15am

Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 will compete in the afternoon, starting at 1:05pm

We apologise for the change in plans, and hope that you’ll still be able to join us on the 18th for a day of sporting excellence!
