Thurlstone Primary School - Putting Learning at the Heart of the Community

Let’s Get Physical

We love sport at Thurlstone and are proud of our ‘have a go’ attitude and our amazing team spirit!

Mrs Gibbins and Mrs Hinchliffe are the Leaders of Sport and P.E in school. They work together to plan, monitor and review the provision of Sport and P.E across school and the impact our provision has on the progress and ability of our children and how involved and successful our children are in local competitions.

Mrs Hinchliffe has many roles in school; but her main role is to support the teaching of P.E in school, to develop the skills of our most able children and to promote and organise our after school competitions and events. She also runs a VERY popular after school running club.

Since introducing The Dail Mile back in October 2015, our children have become much fitter. All children from Reception to Year 6 get outside every day for between 10 and 15 minutes and walk, jog or run a mile – it’s so simple but the impact has been fantastic!

We’re very proud to have achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Award GOLD AWARD.

Here you can find out what we’ve been getting up to P.E. in lessons, Sporting tournaments and afterschool clubs.

We have a LET’S GET PHYSICAL display in school which has up to date photos and fixtures information which can also be found here!
