Baschurch Primary School has been awarded the prestigious GOLD School Games Mark! This is a result of a huge amount of work and organisation by Mr McGrath, who has worked so hard to co-ordinate our sports provision. He has taken the children to numerous sporting events over the last few years and we really appreciate how much time he has put into it. We have so many opportunities for the children at Baschurch now which suit a wide range of interests. This has increased the uptake and motivation of the children, and led to us achieving this award at Gold Level. Some of the sports we now offer include archery, fencing, table tennis, new-age kurling, Change4Life, swimming, dodgeball, multisports, football and tennis.
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics…
- Participation – how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
- Competition – how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
- Workforce – how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
- Clubs – how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?
We would like to wish you all a wonderful summer holiday! Hopefully the sun will continue to shine for us all!
Good luck to all of our year 6 pupils who will be starting secondary school in September. You have been absolutely fabulous and we will miss you all very much.
Last day of summer term – Friday 20 July
First day of autumn term – Tuesday 04 September
Just a reminder that it is our Year 6 Leavers’ Service tomorrow, Friday 20 July, at All Saints’ Church, Baschurch. The service will begin at 1.30pm. We look forward to seeing you all there.
We are seeing more and more unclaimed lost property in school and at the end of this term we have had at least 3 black bags worth to dispose of! None of these items has an identifiable name in it and much of it is not regulation school uniform.
From next term we will be changing the way we deal with lost property. At the end of every week we will return any clearly named items, give any decent unnamed uniform to the Friends and then dispose of the rest.
It would help us tremendously if all items worn to school had a clear name in it – we can then easily return it to the rightful owner.
Thank you for your co-operation.
