School Sports Mark - Gold Award
 
We are delighted to announce that Cavendish has been awarded the Gold Sports Award Mark. This is a fabulous development from our Silver Award last year and demonstrates the impact of our commitment to our children's physical health and effective use of the P.E funding from the government.

We consistently participate in Area school tournaments, including; Tag Rugby, Rounders, Hockey, Athletics, quadkid Athletics and Football (team dependent on numbers), as well as our own Inter House tournaments held at school between Houses. All children have 2 lessons of P.E per week, KS2 have the benefit of a Premier Sports Coach for one of their lessons, to support our participation in the Area school Tournaments. All children in year 3/4 will also have swimming lessons during the Summer Term.
 

Interschool Athletics Tournament 2020

Children from Neptune Class competed in our first sports competition of the year, attending the Inter school Athletics Tournament at Thomas Gainsborough school, in the first heat of the tournament, alongside other schools within the area. It was a hugely fast paced, energetic morning, with the children competing in both track and field events. It was a great success with much fun being had by all. All the children gave it their best shot, with fantastic sportsmanship throughout the morning, amongst all the participants. Well done to everybody who took part.

Hockey Tournament 7th November 2019

A mixed team of eight year 5/6's took part in the Hockey Quicksticks Tournament, held at Sudbury Ormiston Academy , on the afternoon of Thursday 7th November. In a new twist for our team, the tournament was held inside, resulting in fast paced energetic matches. Our guys and girls were amazing and played extremely well, getting stuck in right from the off, resulting in 3 out of 5 wins and 3rd placed in our group! Great fun was had by all, we were extremely proud of their energy and enthusiasm, well done!
