Sports Day Arrangements


The school has been working hard to try and make sure that Sports Days can go ahead this year despite the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place. We have now agreed a format that will allow us to run the events in a safe and organised manner.


In a change to previous years, sports days will now be held in individual year groups. This will enable us to limit and control the number of adults on site at any time and to ensure that safe social distances can be maintained in our outdoor spaces.


We therefore ask that only 2 adults per child attend their child’s event, younger siblings who are not of school age can attend with their parents but we ask that no other school age siblings attend.


All adults who attend site should keep any younger siblings closely controlled, follow the instructions of staff on where to spectate, not go near the children and respect all social distancing conventions from other households. Due to the nature of the current Covid-19 pandemic, if staff feel that the session is becoming unsafe due to the behaviour of others then the children will be taken back into the school building and the event cancelled.


This will be the first major school event that has taken place since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and we ask that all parents respect, follow and support our guidelines to ensure the event takes place successfully.


The dates and times of your child’s sports days are as follows:


Monday 5th July

9.15am -10.15am: Year 5

10.30am – 11.30am: Year 6

12.45pm – 1.45pm: Year 3

2.00pm – 3.00pm: Year 4


Tuesday 6th July

9.15am -10.15am: EYFS

12.45pm – 1.45pm: Year 1

2.00pm – 3.00pm: Year 2


Following the afternoon sessions children will be able to leave with their parents should they wish. Please make sure that you let your child’s class teacher know if you are going to do this.
