Run for Rutland

Well done to the 18 children from school who took part in the Run for Rutland fun run at Oakham Rugby Club on April 1st. It was a great event despite the weather and the children were fantastic as always. A special mention for Isaac who was the third fastest finisher out of the entire field. A well done and thanks to all who contributed sponsorship money, in total we raised £223 for charity.


Gold Mark 

The School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels. 

The Mark is a retrospective award which will validate your success over the ongoing academic year. 

This year we have achieved the gold mark for the third year running, the only Rutland Primary School to do so three times! 

This recognises the dedication to sport that all our staff, children and parents have and the links that we make with Rutland School Sport through participation in events and competitions as well as our links to external clubs.

Our curriculum focus this year for staff is gym and dance and we are also exploring further possibilities to develop physical literacy for all our pupils. Through our house system the leaders are running intra school competitions and we are competing in as many different sports as possible with other Rutland primaries. 

We are busy organising and running fundraising events alongside FEM to try and realise our dream of a school Astro Turf to enable our children to access an extended all weather hard surface to play as much sport as possible. 

We have also planned 3 themed healthy living days to enable the children to explore further actions that will keep them healthy and having a good understanding of healthy living and well being to make the correct choices.


Nutrition and Healthy Eating

Junior Chefs Workshop

On January 6th 2017, Years 3,4,5 and 6 had a junior chefs workshop. They learned about foods and their origins and made a crunchy fruit cocktail. It was great fun and really educational and more importantly the food was delicious.

Let's Get Cooking!

Uncle Ben’s, in association with Let’s Get Cooking (Children’s Food Trust), came in to school on December 15th 2016 to teach the Year 5 & 6 children about healthy eating. They were taught how to prepare and chop vegetables safely and they made a delicious veg- etable and chorizo risotto. They also prepared cranberry cookies to bake at home. The children had a great time, with fun games and activities and they got a lovely apron to take home too.
