After School Clubs, Lunchtime Clubs and External Provision
Over the course of the year our children will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities and games that are offered on top of the two PE lessons that they receive in a week. Our Sports Coach, teachers and external providers will run after school clubs throughout the year that provide different activities such as athletics, fitness fun, netball and football. The school will also provide children with external providers, in a variety of sports and activities who provide more options to our school in order to try and keep our children as active as possible.

Tadcaster Primary School Sports Cluster
Every year we take part in the local Primary School Sports Cluster. The cluster comprises 6 primary schools from around the Tadcaster District area. An events sports calendar is designed every year with various events, festivals and competitions on which we as a school try to attend as many as possible. The calendar is designed by Mr Jackson, the local School Games Organiser (SGO) Stacey Howard and PE Leads from schools who are in the sports cluster. The calendar has the following events on it;
- Level 2 Cluster Competitions: These are competition pathways to the next round. The winners of these events qualify for the Level 2 Selby District Finals. If you win this event you qualify to represent Selby District in the Level 3 North Yorkshire Finals.
- Festivals: These are events that are less focused on competition and more focused on aspects such as introducing children to a new skill or sport, engaging less active children and improving social skills.
Our children have competed in the following events
- Eleven Children from KS1 competed in a Dodgeball event which took place at Tadcaster Riverside
- Almost all KS2 took part in the level 2 Cross Country event in October. We even had some children qualify for the next round!
