Gold School Games Award - July 2019



At St Anne’s Church of England Primary School, we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting positive attitudes towards future healthy lifestyles.  The intent of our PE curriculum is to provide all children with high quality PE and sports provision.  We strive to inspire our pupils through fun and engaging PE lessons that are both challenging and accessible to all.  Our teaching of PE aims to develop pupils physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.  It will provide opportunities for pupils to explore our school values of perseverance, responsibility, forgiveness, acceptance, honesty and respect.  Pupils will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of competitive and non-competitive events ensuring a breadth of experiences.

I could not be more proud of the children who took part in the Nottinghamshire Swimming Gala Finals just two day before the end of term. It was a fantastic team effort whilst enduring extreme temperatures. We came second and brought home another trophy!

Congratulations to our Yr 5 Netball Team who played against Sparken Hill towards the end of term. Final score 5 -1 to us!

2nd April 2019: CONGRATULATIONS to our boys football team for winning the Middle Division Cup Final help at Sparken Hill this evening! It was a very close match and we must send our congratulations to our friends at Holy Family School. Our boys had a strong start going 1-0 up in the first few moments of the match. Holy Family responded well and soon found themselves in the lead by one goal. The match ended with a flurry of goals leaving the final score 3-2 to St Anne's School.

Congratulations to our girls football team who drew 2-2 against St Luke's on the 26th of March. We were particularly impressed with their determination and perseverance as the went from 2-0 down to 2-2 in the last five minutes of the match. What a shining example you all are to the rest of the school. Miss Broughton

On 21st March 8 children from Years 5 & 6 attended an Pop Lacrosse competition at Sparken Hill Academy. There were 8 teams in the competition and there were some tough games against experienced players. Our team were fabulous. They played fairly and enthusiastically although it was only the second time they had even held a stick!

Yr 5/6 Pop Lacrose in readiness for our competition next week. Good luck to all!

At St Anne's School we believe that it is important for our children to experience competitive sport. As a result we have both a boys and a girls football team which we are extremely proud of. Our girls played in their first ever league matches during February/March 2019. They won the first match against Gateford Park 2-0 and drew the second against St Augustine's. We ran a competition for our girls to design their own football kits last year which they are now wearing. I am sure you will agree they look amazing! Our boys have made it to the 'Middle Division' cup final for the second time in two years. They also recently won the 'Bassetlaw Schools' inaugural Futsal Tournament in a thrilling final against Holy Family School!

February 2019 - Bassetlaw Swimming Gala. We had an extremely successful time at the Swimming Gala on Friday the 15th of February winning 21 out of our 28 races to claim first prize. Although some of our swimmers had experienced a gala before, many had not! What a great experience for our children. Your attitude to the event and your team spirit really made you stand out!

In Year 2, we have focussed on our fundamental movements such as running, dodging, jumping, skipping and hopping.  We have applied our skills whilst learning the game ‘French Skipping’.  We have found that this has required us to use increased balance and coordination for our jumping.


We employ a qualified level 4 senior Gymnastics coach, Emma Spencer, who has been teaching gymnastics for over 15 years, to schools and clubs, teaching children from Class Reception to Year 6. She teaches fundamentals of movement, co-ordination, balance, agility and strength. She will be aiding the children in passing the British Gymnastics Core proficiency badges 8-1.

We employ a qualified sports coach, Mr Newton, who is an invasion games specialist teaching children from Class Reception to Year 6. He teaches fundamentals of movement, multi-skills, football, handball and rugby to name but a few! He also runs three of our sports clubs (boys football, girls football and multi-skills).
