CURRENT SPORTING NEWS:
Aldi's Tokyo 2020 Sticker Poster has now been completed in school.
This was an initiative by Aldi, for children to eat healthily in and out of school. They were giving stickers out of all the athletes who could be competing in the Olympics next year and it gives us the chance to win a free kit for school and also a chance of winning one of 20 lots of £20,000.
Here is a photo of the completed poster in school.
Well done to everyone involved at school, who have brought in stickers for us to be able to complete the poster. We are going to continue collecting, as we have another poster in school which we are hoping to complete, which will give us twice the chance to win.
As we enter a new school year, here are some images of the 2018-2019 highlights regarding PE and School Sport.
We entered 39 events last year, 14 more than the previous year.
School Games Mark
We achieved the GOLD School Games Mark once again for the 2018-2019 school year, which is a fantastic achievement for the school and everyone related to it. This comes from children participating in clubs after school and at dinnertime, Sports Play Leaders within school helping out, parents willingness to let children participate in as many events as possible and lastly the teachers for their continued support with helping out within and out of school.
School Sports Funding
The Government has provided all schools with funding to improve physical education and sport in primary schools.
We have allocated the funding to the following, which includes the Burnley School Sports Partnership:

At St. Stephen's, we pride ourselves on our extra-curricular sports program, that saw our children take part in 39 different events in the last academic year and that isn't even including events within school. We think it is important that children experience a wide range of opportunities and so far this year children have competed in competitions involving Hockey, Football, Tag-Rugby, Basketball, Table-Tennis and Cross Country with competitions in Gymnastics, Swimming, Netball, Rounders and Cricket.
We also run an Outdoor Adventure weekend for Years 4, 5 and 6 every Easter where we venture to PGL Boreatton Park. The children spend a whole weekend in the outdoors. They have fun, test themselves physically but also learn fantastic teamwork and cooperation skills. For the last three years, we have had over 50 children (1/4 of the school) attending the weekend.
