Introducing Mr Parrella - Teacher of Sport
Mr Parrella is our main teacher of sport for children throughout the school. As well as teaching in lessons, Mr Parrella is also responsible for running the majority of our sporting after school clubs and arranging friendly and competitive sporting fixtures with other schools.
On this page we will keep parents up to date with our sporting news and details of the clubs we are running each term.
On Monday 1st October we took 18 boys from Key Stage 2 to Middleton Primary School to take part in a festival of football. It was a great way to start the competitive season and both of our boys football teams did fantastically well.
Our Year 3/4 boys team drew 1-1 and our Year 5/6 boys team secured their first ever competitive win, beating a strong Middleton team 2-0.
Well done boys!
