COMPETITIVE SPORT 2011-12 ROUNDUP
In September 2011, Mr McAvoy took over the role of Competitive Sport Leader and – working alongside a team of key staff members, Clavering families and enthusiastic children – transformed competitive sport at Clavering.
2011-2012 became, by far and away, the most successful year in Clavering’s history for competitive sport in terms of competitions entered, competitions won and the percentage of children having the opportunity to represent the school.
A magnificent 82% of children in Year 6 represented the school in competitive sport during 2011-2012 and we competed in inter-sport competitions in TEN different sports across Key Stage 2, plus organising our first ever North Hartlepool Family of Schools’ Summer Games for children across the school.
It was an AMAZING year for all involved!
Our Year 6 Boys’ Football Team became the Year 6 Boys’ Northern Schools’ League Champions having won every match with a goal difference of plus 22! Captain Josh Lester was the top scorer across all three boys’ leagues.
Our Year 6 Boys’ Football Team became the Boys’ Hartlepool Town Cup Champions! They WON their final 5-1!
Our Year 6 Boys’ Football Team became the ESFA Cup Champions!

Our Year 3 Tennis Team won their Cluster Tennis Tournament and did extremely well in the Town Tennis Finals.
Our Key Stage 2 Swimming Team was made up of boys and girls from across Key Stage 2. They represented Clavering at the Town Swimming Gala, competing brilliantly in their individual races and relays.
Following success in the Cluster Cross Country Competition, thirty of our runners from our Years 3-4, Year 5 and Year 6 Cross Country Teams participated in Town Cross Country Finals. Particular congratulations to Thomas Clasper (Year 5) and Liam Pritchard (Year 6) who were both selected to represent Hartlepool in the Tees Valley Finals.

- we held our first ever North Hartlepool Family of Schools’ Summer Games;
- a group of Year 5 and 6 pupils attended the Olympic Games;
- to further enhance Physical Education and Competitive Sport, we joined the Olympics’ ‘Get Set plus’ and Youth Sport Trust’s ‘School Games’ networks; and
