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.

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, for whom we hope to organise friendly matches later in the year.

Our new netballers in Y4-5 are learning the sport and developing their skills. We will be organising some friendly matches for the team later on this year, and will be rejoining the local netball league in 2022/23 once they have honed their talents!

Athletics

There are a number of events over the course of the school year which given children from all year groups the opportunity to participate in a range of activities.

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.

Coming up later this year, Key Stage 2 children have the chance to compete in Sportshall Athletics, Quad Kids, and our school Sports Day.
