Sport

We place a high value on sport at Gidea Park Primary School, and children are given the opportunity to compete and represent their school at a number of different events over the course of the year, many of these being organised by Havering Sports Collective.

Clubs

 

Football

At Gidea Park we run football teams in Year 5/6 for both boys and girls. Teams train weekly and have the opportunity to play in friendly matches against local schools, as well as competing in other local league and cup competitions. We also run training for Year 3/4 boys and girls, for whom there will be friendly matches in the Summer Term.

All children from Reception to Year 6 competed in a 'Virtual Cross Country Run', with courses varying from 500m for younger pupils up to 1600m for the older ones.
