The events have been in a range of different sports and physical activities from multi skills festivals, to Change4Life festivals to tag rugby competitions. The events have aimed to provide all pupils with an opportunity to represent their school and enjoy being active alongside pupils from other schools.

  3. Bluebell Primary School (219 children)
  4. West Earlham Junior School (196 pupils)
  5. Cringleford Primary School (182 children)


Also, a special recognition to the schools who have participated in the most events through the first term that they are eligible for:

  1. Colman Junior School (100% events attended)

George Harmer, Community Sport Project Officer said

“It’s been such a great first term and it’s amazing to see the amount of children participating in activities from competitive sport to non-competitive physical activity. I’m looking forward to what the next school term has for us!”

Next term brings us more festivals, more development leagues and also our ‘Top of the Pops Dance Show’ on January 24th. To keep up to date with all our events check out our Events Calendar.
