Links School Sports Partnership Supporting Local Primary Schools
Over the current term, Springs Academy has worked
closely with the Links School Sports Partnership and the local primary schools
to ensure as many pupils as possible have access to the excellent sports
facilities at Springs Academy.
Children from Year 5 at Gleadless Primary school have used the climbing wall
and bike track as part of their enrichment programme of activities.
Year 5 and 6 pupils from Bankwood, Valley Park, Gleadless, Norfolk, Prince
Edwards and Arbourthorne have used the sports hall to take part in a number of
sports hall athletics events, with the top performing school representing our
cluster of schools in the Sheffield finals in December.
A number of football competitions for Y5 and 6 boys and girls have been held
with pupils from Carfield, Anns Grove, Wybourn, Valley Park, Bankwood, Prince
Edwards, Norfolk and Manor Lodge all taking part. Wybourn Primary are also
using Springs as their home pitch for all the league matches that they have to
play with teams from across Sheffield.
Prince Edward`s pupils are taking part in a series of trampolining lessons
being run by Miss Sleaford and all sixty of their Y2`s came over to Springs for
a min sports festival in October.
A number of Springs Academy pupils have helped to officiate and volunteered at
all these events. All help has been greatly appreciated by everyone.
