Due to Government’s advice our sports squads are temporarily suspended until further notice
The new Government guidelines published on Thursday 5th December 2020 states that out-of-school activities (including wraparound care) may continue to operate if their primary purpose is providing registered childcare. All other out of school activities, not being primarily used by parents for these purposes, should close for face-to-face provision for the duration of the national restrictions. This sadly means we have to cancel all the out of school clubs including sports team training we had hoped to go ahead this term.
Sports at Wallace Fields Junior School
For the 2017-2018 period, Wallace Fields had the highest level of participation across the borough of all organised sports arranged by Active Surrey, and were subsequently 19th across the county. This is a great achievement due to the enthusiasm of our brilliant children and this year our aim is to do even more!
We are proud of our sporting tradition at Wallace Fields Juniors. We normally have teams who represent the school regularly in Netball, Football, Cricket, Athletics, and Tag Rugby. Our sports clubs include Netball, Football, Fencing, 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 activity sessions are held at lunchtimes and promoted in school assemblies. This will normally be run by the Sports Crew who will be appointed from the Year 6 children in the Autumn term.
Sports blog launched
Some budding sports journalists have launched a Sports blog on our website. Please see the first blog by clicking on https://www.wallacefields-jun.surrey.sch.uk/news/2020-11-27-sports-blog-launched
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 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.
