Level 2 Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics Festival

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 10:07

On Tuesday 24th January 2017, the Partnership hosted the first every Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics Competition, and what an event it was. Partnership Enhanced Schools were invited to attend and 10 of the 15 school participated. As with the Year 5/6 competitions prior to this, the quality of the performances was outstanding - we really do have some incredible talent in our Northampton Schools.

Many of those participating will be eligible to participate in next years Year 5/6 Level 3 qualifying event - so exciting times ahead.

Congratulations to all teams who competed in this new event - definitely something I think we should keep in the calendar for future years!

Instead of awarding points schools were awarded Shining Stars (as the event was a Festival) and so the Year 3/4 Sportshall Athletics Shining Stars are...

1st: Lings Primary (127 Shining Stars)

2nd: All Saints Primary (125 Shining Stars)

3rd: Boothville Primary (105 Shining Stars)

NPAT Cluster Update - Term 2

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 11:03

Another busy term for the NPAT schools. With Young Leaders all trained it was time to see them in action - I had a wonderful few lunchtimes popping into schools to see first hand the work they are doing. It has been so encouraging to see how well organised they have all been, the impact on the students they are working with is very clear to see, with fantastic amounts of activity on offer during the break/lunchtimes at each school. This term also saw great participation in the Pre-Level 2 competition practices and Year 5 Multisport Festival (where the childrens behaviour was exemplary when hit with a arctic storm on the rubber crumb!). With the competition calender in full swing, it is great to see so many of our cluster schools regularly coming in the top 3! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
