Sporting Events 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!
Not only do we have a full, regular curriculum to promote physical exercise during school, but we also offer the opportunity for extra sporting experiences at Wallace Fields Junior School. We are extremely proud of this sporting tradition where we aim to develop sporting attitudes and ideas of fair play through competitive sport.
Our sports clubs include Netball, Football, Fencing, Tag-Rugby, Basketball and Judo and have teams who represent the school regularly in Netball, Football, Cricket, Athletics and Tag-Rugby. We also participate in a variety of inter-school competitions throughout the year to ensure all children are involved.
Our Sports Leader, Mrs Wilson, selects teams for football, netball and tag-rugby through trials and the children have the opportunity to represent the school at matches and tournaments. At other times of the year, there will also be other teams as we love to get involved in all sports!
Please see the information about our Netball, Football and Indoor Athletics Squads through the side bar.
We have Sports Journalists around our school who will be working to keep you updated through blogs about all the competitions and events happening across the school.

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
A message from Mrs Wilson:: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message with the School Office. Thank you.
Sports Premium Funding
We receive extra government funding for sport based on the number of pupils we have here at Wallace Fields Juniors. This funding goes towards developing the sporting experience for all pupils including buying new equipment, additional coaches and leaders and new experiences linked to sport and exercise. Please see how this money was spent last year in the document above.
