Sporting Activities



Sports Relief 2016

This year the School Council proposed we participate in

the national charity Sports Relief.

We decided to have a whole school non-uniform day and that our children would wear their sports clothes.

We needed to ask all our families and friends to sponsor us to complete a sport activity.

Have a look at some of the activities we hosted on the day.

The whole school went on a 2.5 mile walk to relate to those children from different countries who may have to walk a long distance to attend a school.

Thank you to the children, parents and staff for making the day a great success.

We raised a staggering 


Well done everyone!!!










Our wonderful Carlton Guardians organise games at lunchtimes, encouraging other children to participate and enjoy themselves. They do a fabulous job! Our Guardians went on a Sports Leadership training session today to develop their skills further!


Please take a look at some highlights of their session below:




12 of our Key Stage One children took part in the Sports Hall Tournament at Batley Sports and Tennis Centre. The children were placed in mixed groups with children from Priestley House, this was to develop their communication and social skills. Not only did they take part in athletic activities, but ball skills were also introduced. The children were supported by an adult at each station of the circuit, they did brilliantly at moving around the sports hall when instructed to do so.

 Although the children were competing in teams, the target of each activity was to beat their personal best, by the end of the session the children really developed in confidence and self-esteem. All children were engaged and all activities were tailored to children’s differing needs. Our children really enjoyed the activities and working together as a team, not only with their peers but with children from Priestley House. The children's behaviour was impeccable and they were the perfect ambassadors for our school.  Take a look at the highlights below:



Early Years and Key Stage One enjoyed a fun Sports Afternoon in the sun! Please take a look at the video below.






Year 4 took part in a sporting event 'Mission Active' in Huddersfield. Lots of schools from Kirklees took part in the fun day.

EYFS & Key Stage One Sports Day 2013




Carlton football team played a friendly match against Warwick Road football team on our Muga. Both teams showed maturity and good sportmanship during an entertaining game. Unfortunatly Carlton lost this time but we are determined to win when we play them next time.




Today, nine children from year 3 and 4 took part in the School Games Cricket Tournament, at Batley Cricket Club.

This was their first tournament together as a team and played fantastically! They tried really hard, developed their communication skills as well as their batting, bowling and fielding. One school even commented on how well we fielded!

Unfortunately, we didn't win the tournament but competed well, with all children commenting on how much they had enjoyed the day.

Esa in year 4 said, "I have really enjoyed my self today!" whilst Mariam commented, "It is the taking part that counts and I have got better!"


Take a look at the photos of our day!
