SPORTS PREMIUM AT LONG CRENDON

At Long Crendon School children experience a wide range of sporting activities. The school is fortunate in having excellent facilities for physical education with extensive playing fields, hard court area, an outdoor swimming pool and a large hall/gym.

A variety of extra-curricular sports clubs run throughout the year for all age groups and are open to all abilities. Please see ‘Clubs and Activities’ for what is happening at the moment.

We are part of the Buckingham School Sport Partnership and selected pupils from all the year groups take part in a variety of competitions between other primary schools. During the past year our children have excelled at these competitions both in their ability and their attitude. Matches against local schools are also played throughout the year.

Within school all children take part in competitive sports once every three weeks in their house competitions. Towards the end of the summer term all the children take part in Sports Day gaining points for their houses. At the end of the year all the points gained from competitive sports are totalled and the winning house is awarded the Sports Trophy.

SPORTS DAY 2018

During the morning the children competed in mixed age House teams. They applied themselves to numerous multi skill activities trying to achieve as many points as possible for their House. The morning ended with a long distance run which the children had requested!

In the afternoon the children competed in sprint races, relays and obstacle races. The Parents then had a go at the Obstacle race and re-lived their younger days of going on space hoppers and jumping in sacks! The afternoon ended with a Tug of War competition between the Houses. There was much cheering for the different Houses throughout the day and loads of determination on children’s faces! The points gained from the different activities of the day were added up. NEPTUNE won the Sports Day Shield for the second year running!
