Suffolk Sporting Primary School of the Year Nomination
We were delighted to hear the news earlier today that the school has been shortlisted in the final three for the prestigious 'Healthy Ambitions Suffolk Primary school of the Year Award'.
Their description of our school (based on last year) reads:
Earl Soham Community Primary school started the academic year with 64 pupils on roll. This did not deter them from continuing to provide a wide range of extra curricular activities nor entering many of the School Games competitions. The commitment of staff and parents enabled the pupils to qualify for an unprecedented 5 county finals, the highlights of these being the School Games Festival in Bury St Edmunds where the school finished 5th in the swimming and remained unbeaten in Netball. All children have access to sporting activities with participation levels high in the many after school clubs offered. The whole school sports day continued the ethos of the Olympics with participation and enjoyment working alongside teamwork, respect, determination and commitment. The children’s achievements both within school and outside of the school environment are recognised and celebrated at the schools ‘sharing assembly’ with the parents every Friday morning. What the school has achieved, considering it’s size, is phenomenal.
A big thank you for the nomination and for everyone's continued support in enabling the children to have the opportunities to take part in so many different sporting activities.
The awards ceremony takes place at Trinity Park, Ipswich, during the evening of Friday 15th November. Fingers crossed!
