PE and Sports at Milefield

Sports Award

 We are extremely pleased to announce that we have been awarded the Bronze award for the school games mark. This is a result of all pupils' hard work and dedication to sport. This would not have been possible without the staff's hard work and Team Activ's support. We would like to thank parents for their support too and we look forward to achieving silver next year!


Team Activ 

 In the new year, all pupils will have the chance to work with Team Activ in sports. We have bought into their competitions package and this means all pupils from KS1-KS2 will have opportunities to take part in local events and competitions in a range of sports. These will be shared with parents and whenever possible, parents will be invited to watch their children take part.

Team Activ will also be training our HLTAs and some teaching staff in PE delivery across FS-Y4. This will then be used in all PE lessons delivered by HLTAs.

Breakfast clubs from January will have a sports focus and pupils will be invited to join in with pupils from all age ranges every morning from 8-9am. This costs £1 per pupil which will go towards funding coaches for pupils to transport them to events and competitions.


Gifted and Talented

At Milefield we are always on the lookout for future sports stars. Teachers work closely with parents and sports coaches to highlight children with exceptional skills in different areas of PE. We work hard to tailor all PE sessions to meet the needs of the child through are setting of children. We also provide advice to parents about sport opportunities outside school that may be beneficial to their child.


When children enter Year 4 they are given the opportunity to access swimming lessons . The swimming lessons take part in February (Beginning 22nd February) and last for 15 weeks. Children really look forward to their weekly swimming lesson. Please make sure they bring a swimming kit and towel every week. Swimming kit should be: shorts for boys and costume for girls.

Year 5/6 Olympics Competition at English Institute of Sport

12th January 2018

 On Monday 12th January, 21 pupils from Y5 and 6 took part in an inter-schools competition at the English Institute of Sports in Sheffield. They competed in events including sprint, long jump and javelin. All pupils were given the opportunity to compete against a variety of schools from across Yorkshire. They enjoyed competing on an actual running track in front of their peers not only from their own setting but over 20 others. They competed on the same track as Olympics legends like Jessica Ennis-Hill. This was an event they all enjoyed taking part in and especially winning some races! Below are some pictures from the event.

Orienteering at Cannon Hall

All Y6 went to Cannon Hall to work in groups to orienteer. We had a fantastic day out and all children worked well together. We were very proud of our pupils and their behaviour today. The winning team managed to find all the letters in 19 minutes.
