Sports Day

Friday 2nd July 2021

Dear Parents,

Following on from the dates issued last week for Sports Days we wished to provide more details and timings on these events.


Monday 12th July - Year 3 Sports Day 9.15am

Tuesday 13th July – Year 2 Sports Day 9.15am

Thursday 15th July – Year 4 Sports Day 9.15am

Thursday 15th July – Year 5 Sports Day 2pm

Friday 16th July – Reception Sports Day 9.15am

Friday 16th July – Year 1 Sports Day 2pm

We have been required to carry out a risk assessment on these events and to ensure they comply with Local Authority and Department of Education guidance. We are confident that if everyone works together and all visitors to the site comply with the requirements below we can carry out the events successfully and safely.

We are only permitted to have limited numbers so two relatives/guests per child are able to attend, we are sorry but this does include children/siblings. Family members will need to stay in their designated area and will not be able to enter the school building or use the facilities. At the moment under the current guidance family members will not have to wear face coverings when spectating but we kindly ask that you please continue to do so on arrival and departure. There will be no refreshments available like in other years. Photographs can be taken but must not be shared online at all. If we become aware that photographs are shared online, we will no longer be able to permit photographs to be taken at school events. Each year group’s Sports Days will likely last between 40 minutes to an hour and further details specific to each class are available on weekly class letters.

In the event of unsuitable weather conditions, we will do our best to reschedule as we have done in the past but it may be a challenge to do so this year.


Hopefully, we won’t have any changes to guidance and avoid poor weather and we’ll have some memorable days with our families back on the school field.


Thank you for your continuing support,


Rob Bothma
