Sports for Champions have a mission to visit every school in the U.K and Ireland to inspire children to lead a healthy lifestyle. They will be in Dunn Street on 14th February. Your child will receive their sponsor form on Friday, 11th January and all monies should be collected and returned to school by 7th February.
Keeping Children Active
Through their visits, Sports for Champions can unleash a new found excitement in schools, positively inspiring children to ditch the computer games and fast food to become healthier and lead a more active lifestyle.
Inspire and Educate
They believe that every child is capable of becoming tomorrow’s champion!
Meet Top Athletes
Sports For Champions U.K Community Interest Company are the primary organisers for bringing Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth Games, World Championship, European Championship athletes into schools nationally.
We are looking forward to welcoming David Smith who represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, where he is originally from. Now he trains in Birmingham but loves returning home to visit friends and family and get back to his roots. He was also placed 2nd in the British Championship and the World Trials in 2017 and was the Scottish Indoor and Outdoor High Jump Champion of 2017.
In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with his friends, going to the cinema and he also enjoys playing on his Playstation and watching sport on the TV. He doesn’t really follow a strict diet but he does try and have a balanced diet, making sure that he gets lots of high protein foods.
Sports for Champions are proud to be members of the Fund Raising Regulator (FR) – they are also regulated in all that they do and they have to follow strict guidelines set out by the regulators– this means that schools, parents and pupils can be confident knowing that:
- The money raised by you is supporting athletes without sponsorship – you know upfront who they are.
- Your very own school benefits from an additional income strand, which supports increasingly stretched school funds.
- A very small proportion of the overall money is re-invested in our Sports For Champions project to enable us to continue visiting other schools nationally.
- All parties to this agreement have a clear understanding of their commitments to the Sponsored Challenge (including costs and administrative co-ordination)

KS2 Sports Day took on a new format this year. Parents and pupils enjoyed watching Year 3 and 4 boys and girls race over 400m and Year 5 boys and girls race over 600m to gain points for their teams.
There was then the culmination of a week of “Kicky Rounders” with all teams playing for more points.
Tug-of-war completed the morning with parents, teachers and children all being involved.
Thank-you to helpers on: refreshments – Mrs Moore, Mrs Ramshaw and Mrs Dunn; scoring – Mrs Hird and finish line co-ordinator / tug-of-war starter – Sarah from PWA!
Monies donated will go towards kit for next year’s event! Thank-you.
From our Parent/Pupils After-School Club to Year 3/4’s Sky Try Rugby coaching and tournament to Year 5/6’s PE lessons, rugby has been enjoyed by many pupils this term!

Thank-you to Mr Taylor for fabulous sessions where everyone showed good progress whilst having a giggle! Thank-you also for your generous gifts of rugby balls for each pupil participant!
Sky Try is all about helping more children enjoy Rugby League nationwide. It’s a ground breaking new partnership initiative between the RFL, Sky and the Rugby League Foundations.
Sky Try is the biggest ever programme of Rugby League opportunities in primary and secondary schools.
Sky Try is helping 700,000 more children and young people have fun, get active, grow in confidence and enjoy Rugby League.
The Sky Try campaign inspires children and young people through professional Rugby League clubs and major Rugby League events. Sky Try is changing the future of Rugby League by giving hundreds of thousands of children and young people a high quality introduction to the sport and helping them to find more playing local opportunities – from school teams to local community clubs and the award-winning talent pathway.
Following on from first place at BCA Championships earlier in the year, our KS2 squad, Dunn Street Diamonds, secured another first place at the South Tyneside competition at Temple Park.
A 6am meet at school meant that 96% of the squad had a really early start and 4% of the squad broke world records for getting out of bed and into school in the shortest time possible! Warm-up started at 7.30am back stage:
They all worked hard and took to the stage with a confidence that made everyone incredibly proud!
We are so pleased that some of our younger students are coming to try rugby with someone from home!
We will be working with the fabulous Mr Taylor who has strong links with our school and a wealth of experience playing and coaching Rugby League.
Please make sure you AND YOUR GROWN-UP have the right kit for getting active!!
You will need PE kit for being inside and outside because, if the sun decides to shine, we will go outside! This includes appropriate footwear.
A water-bottle might be a good idea as well.
The club will run from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
See you Thursday!
Miss Noble & Mr Taylor
