We are very excited to be representing our classes on the Sports Council. During our first meeting, we decided that our priorities for this year will be as follows:

  • To help organise and run KS1 and KS2 Sports Days.
  • To organise a whole school charity sports event.
  • To launch the Active Travel Passport. As part of this we will do a whole school assembly and organise and run active travel to school breakfasts. 
  • Every Wednesday lunchtime we will lead sports activities at lunchtime. 
  • We will help choose equipment to keep us active and healthy at lunchtimes.
  • We will help input the data for The Golden Mile. 


We would also like to introduce ourselves:

Term 1

We have met and decided what we would like to achieve as a Sports Council this year (please see the list above). We all talked to our classes and got some feedback from every child on their thoughts on PE and activity at St James - what works well, it would be even better if... We then prioritised what we think is important and achievable and came up with our targets. We spent a long time choosing some amazing new equipment for the playground at lunchtime and cannot wait for it to arrive.

Active Travel to School

As part of trying to get all children to be active for 60 minutes a day - 30 in school and 30 out of school, we decided we would try and encourage a more active travel to school. We have teamed up with Sustrans - a charity whose mission to is enable more people to travel in an active way. Though Sustrans main focus is cycling, we are also focusing on walking and scooting to school too. 


Active Travel to School and a Free Breakfast

On Thursday 30th November we organised an active travel to school day. If we travelled to school by walking, on our bikes or on a scooter, we got a free breakfast. Hundreds of us joined in. Some who lived further away parked a mile away from school and walked, amazing!

Active Lunchtimes

One of our aims this year is to try and get all children active for 30 minutes at lunchtime. We started by asking all classes what equipment they would like to play actively with. At one of our meetings we discussed what we could afford, what would work and had to budget out what to buy and what would make people active. We chose trampolines, scooters, drifters, skipping ropes, hoops, swingball, large balls and small balls. We are really pleased with how much the equipment is used. 

Sports activities at St James Church School


St James has an amazing range of sports activities that go on throughout the year.  To find out more please see our Sports Activities page.
