PE at Holbrook Primary School
PE Coordinator - Miss Matticks
This year (2018/19), Holbrook Primary School has been awarded our first Gold School Games Mark Award! We are continuously working on ensuring we can offer a broad and exciting range of sporting opportunities, that appeal to all children. We are a proud member of the School Games Scheme, which allows our children to take part in a high number of competitions, tournaments and festivals in the local area. We also pride ourselves on having strong sporting links with our local, and partnership schools. Finally, we are now working with Ipswich Town's Community Trust to provide more football opportunities for our pupils, who are such keen footballing stars!
As a school aiming to offer an aspirational level of sporting opportunities, we are proud members of the School Games programme. This programme enables us to enter additional competitions with local schools in the Ipswich area, take part in excellent staff training to ensure children are always receiving the most up-to-date learning opportunities, and allows us to offer a broader range of sports through exciting festival opportunities.
As a result of being members of the School Games programme, we also apply for the School Games Mark. This is a nationally recognised award which gives us a clear idea of what we are achieving as a school, and provides focussed ideas of how we could improve. This year, Holbrook Primary School received their first Gold School Games Mark!
