COMPETITIVE SPORT 2012-2013 ROUNDUP

Following the success of the 'Clavering PE and Sport Programme' in 2011-2012, we had a very hard act to follow. However the Olympic Legacy was very much alive at Clavering Primary School throughout 2012-2013!

2012-2013 was another hugely successful year for the school with a magnificent 90% of children in our 2012-13 Year 6 Cohort representing Clavering in competitive sport.

Just as impressively:

  • 87% of our 2013-14 Year 6 Cohort (2012-2013 Year 5 pupils) also represented Clavering in competitive sport;
  • 78% of our 2014-15 Year 6 Cohort (2012-2013 Year 4 pupils) lso represented Clavering in competitive sport; and
  • in 2012-2013, children from Year 1 to Year 6 all had the opportunity to represent the school in competitive sport, particularly thanks to our second North Hartlepool Family of Schools’ Summer Games.

It was another AMAZING year!

Highlights included:

Football:

Our Year 6 Boys’ Football Team finished the season unbeaten and won the Year 6 Boys’ Northern Schools’ League.

Our Year 5 Boys’ Football Team finished the season unbeaten and won the Year 5 Boys’ Northern Schools’ League.

In addition:

  • we further developed Intra-School Sport at Clavering with every child in every year group from Year 1 to Year 6 having the chance to compete in Intra-School Sport;
  • we held a wonderfully successful Clavering Sports Day with children from Nursery to Year 6 winning thousands of stickers in what was a competitive but fun day;
  • we reaffirmed our link with the Youth Sport Trust’s ‘School Games’ networks and continued to promote and develop the Clavering Sports Values;
  • Clavering sports superstar Alex Lamb became the first girl in Hartlepool to be offered a place in the Elite Development Squad at Dyke House Sports & Technology Academy, having represented Clavering in seven different sports and having been an outstanding ambassador for the school as well as a fine example of all six Clavering Sports Values; and
  • cheered on by a fantastic crowd, the Clavering Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 Athletics Teams performed brilliantly at the second North Hartlepool Family of Schools’ Summer Games, winning 55 medals! Overall, we were crowned the CHAMPIONS, having won 1070 points in comparison with Barnard Grove (980 points), St John Vianney's (800 points), West View (530 points), St Bega's (470 points) and St Helen's (470 points).

What a FANTASTIC year!
