Sports at Wallace Fields Junior School
We are proud of our sporting tradition at Wallace Fields Juniors. We have teams who represent the school regularly in Netball, Football, Cricket, Athletics, Street and Tag Rugby. Our sports clubs include Netball, Football, Gym, Street Dance, Tag-rugby, Basketball and Judo. We aim to develop sporting attitudes and ideas of fair play through competitive sport. We participate in a variety of inter-school competitions throughout the year.
Our Sports Leader selects teams for football, netball and tag rugby through trials and they have the opportunity to represent the school at matches and tournaments. See the information about our Netball, Football and Indoor Athletics Squads. At other times of the year there will also be other teams.
Inspiring the less sporty children
We believe it is also important to encourage the less-sporty to get moving by holding fun games and challenges so we have appointed a Sports Crew who will hold activity sessions at lunchtimes. The sports crew are: Charlie Ransome, Lily King, Lola Wills, Ella Bowles, Emma Kennedy, Daniel Simpson, Thomas Knowles, Will Jayasuriya, Rhys Hamilton & Matylda Pawelkowicz. The Sports Crew has already had its training at NESCOT and children will be told in assembly when the Sports Crew activity will be taking place.
The "squads" should all retain their school kits until further notice but any temporary kits for one-off tournaments, such as athletics vests and rugby kits or loaned football items should be returned to class 6C once washed please, where the kit monitors (Matthew Sprigings and Benj Roffey) will collect it. Thank you.
Queries about Sporting Events
I would like to create a WhatsApp group for each team and event but will always ask permission first before adding anyone's number to a group. This has proved very useful for parents to coordinate lifts and for last minute changes of information to be broadcast. Therefore, please look out for this opportunity on letters that I send out where I will ask if you would like to be added. If you think you might have missed this, simply email me or leave a message with the School Office. Thank you.
We receive extra government funding for sport based on the number of pupils. Please see how this money was spent last year in the document below.
