Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics
On Friday 19th January, a Year 6 pupil and a Year 3 pupil attended the Leeds ‘Come and Try’ Primary Inclusive Sports Hall Athletics School Games Event at John Charles Centre for Sport. It was a really fun event where the children rotated around a circle of activities to challenge their skills based around throwing, movement, hand-eye co-ordination and balance. Our children really enjoyed the target throw and throwing the javelin.
A big “well done”to the y5/y6 Football teams who played in tw0 rounds of the Leeds Rhinos Cross Cluster Football Tournament in horrible weather conditions. The boys really did us proud,showing excellent team work and resilience.
Pudsey Bolton Royd Primary School has been awarded the Youth Sport Trust GOLD Quality Mark for its commitment to physical education (PE), physical activity and school sport. The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity that is building a brighter future for young people through the power of sport.
The Quality Mark is an online self-review tool which provides schools with a nationally recognised award for the quality of their PE and school sport. The tool supports schools to audit their PE provision and identify priorities for their development.
Rachel Redmond from Youth Sport Trust validated the nationally recognised award for the quality of their PE and school sport. Rachel stated “The School has an embedded ethos and culture for PE, Sport and Physical Activity and this is evident right through the school staff community. The pupils that I met were a credit to the school and not afraid to share their thoughts with me. I saw and listened to many wonderful things at Pudsey Bolton Royd.”
Alex Reddish, PE subject leader at Bolton Royd said: “Being assessed by Youth Sport Trust was a really positive experience both for myself as PE Subject Leader and for the school. It gave me a chance to consolidate all the amazing work our school does from Nursery to Year 6 and show someone what a fantastic job we are all doing! It gave the children, through pupil voice, a chance to explain to an outsider what goes on at our school and celebrate our achievements. When I identified our areas for improvement, Rachel gave me very useful advice which she had seen work at other schools and I will definitely act on. “
A big well done to the Y5/6 Sports Hall Athletics Team who achieved second place in the competition at Priesthorpe Co-operative Academy on 21st of November. Great effort everyone!
Gold School Games Mark Award
Congratulations to Pudsey Bolton Royd for achieving the Gold School Games Mark Award for the Second year running!

National Fitness Day
Wednesday 27th September was National Fitness Day and we celebrated it by everyone doing 10 minutes exercise in their classrooms at 10.20am. Some classes learned the samba, some classes were strengthening their core by doing chair based activities and some classes were using and finding out the names of muscles they didn’t know they had! All the staff and pupils really enjoyed it and it will help us to make our classrooms more active places in the future.
Our New Active Slogan!
In July, all the children in KS1 and KS2 were asked to design a new active slogan for PE, School Sport and Physical Activity in 2017-18. We received lots of fantastic entries, but the winner was designed by a Year 5 pupil. The new slogan really encompasses the commitment from both staff and pupils to make our school more active this year; in lesson times, lunch and break times and after school.
