PE and Sports

James Watt Primary School is proud to announce that we received the ‘Gold Award’ for the work we did during the national SAFE project campaign the summer term of 2017 in association with Birmingham City Council.

The aim of the project was to understand the basics of Water Safety and to know how to keep yourself and others safe around water.

All the children here at James Watt took part in assemblies, lessons, and interactive water safety presentations. We were able to run parent workshops that gave a greater understanding of water safety and create some amazing art work which captured the safety message of the project.

Thank you to all children, parents, and staff involved.

 Are you ready to tackle the new school year?

SCHOOL GAMES GOLD AWARD

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the GOLD School Games Mark Award for the 2016/17 academic year.

The School Games Mark is a government-led award scheme that was launched in 2012. It is facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competitive sport across their school and community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.

This is the third year in a row that we have been honoured with this prestigious award.

Our other sporting achievements this year have included:

  • winning the Aston Partnership championships in:
    • tri-golf
    • rounders
    • handball
  •  … and so going on to represent Aston in the all-Birmingham Level 3 Summer School Games in these disciplines in July 2017
  •  being promoted to the Premiership League in football (Y5/6 team)
  •  winning gold and silver medals in athletics in the West Birmingham Athletics Championships in June 2017.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded so highly this year.

 

A huge thank you to Miss Clay and her team for making all of this possible.
