Here at the Priory we take children's health and well being very seriously! To this end we aim to provide as many opportunities as we can for children to engage in a variety of physical activities to compliment the effective work we do in school towards developing their core fundamental skills in PE lessons.
Eastwood & District Swimming Gala.
Thursday 23rd February 2017.
Today we went to Kimberley Pool take part in the annual swimming gala. On arriving at the pool the children cast aside their nerves and competed admirably against other larger schools in the area. We had mixed success regarding our positioning in the heats but had many more children making it through to the 'finals' than in previous years, which was excellent.
It's not possible to put into words how proud we are of all of the children. They arrived and departed the pool with smiles on their faces, swam their best and remained super sports throughout the morning. That is all we can ask! They are all a credit to our school and we are lucky to have them! It's really important to support and represent your school and you all did that brilliantly today!
Well done everyone!
A huge thank you also goes to all of the parents who helped transport children to and from the pool in such delightful weather and those who met us at the pool to offer their support.
Hope to see some of you at the next sporting event:

Joe Roebuck Visit.
We had the most amazing afternoon with Joe Roebuck, who worked with all of the children in school and helped us all through a very high energy (not to mention tiring) fitness circuit. He then delivered an inspiring assembly to a packed hall. We were able to learn all about his life and what it takes to become an Olympian.
See the photos below for a further insight into our 'fit-tastic', fun-filled Friday afternoon!

Tuesday 13th may 2014. Priory football team went to the top field and played a game of football against Springbank. We had a team talk and knew our positions. After, we shook hands and got in our positions.
Springbank got the kick off and as soon as they passed the ball Caolan passed the ball to Bradley and he crossed the ball in and James tapped the ball into the back of their net. That also happened again so it was 2-0 to Priory. Springbank played some good football but Priory played some better football. It came to half time and it was 2-0.
After the break, Priory got the kick off and ran up with the ball but their keeper got the ball and kicked it up field so one of their players could get the ball and shoot. Christopher was our goal stopper. He rolled the ball out to Alex then he kicked the ball down the line for Caolan to collect. Then Caolan gave the ball to James who then skilled their defenders on and shot but Ryan tapped it in the back of the net, 3-0 the score was. Caolan got the ball, ran down the line and shot and he scored to make it four nil. Springbank came back strong and they got one goal back. It came down to the final minute and Caolan went on his runs again and he did a brilliant cross in the box, the keeper came out to get it, but it got over his hands and Bradley was there to head it into a empty net. The final whistle came and it ended 5-1 to Priory.
If Priory get at least one point in their next game they will win the league and get promoted into the Golden League.

Wednesday 29th April 2015.
Today was the Eastwood and District Cross Country Competition at Brookhill Leys Primary School. We had held 'try outs' earlier and had an amazing 46 children take part! It was absolutely amazing to see so many of our Key Stage Two children showing an interest in running!
Unfortunately we were only able to take 12 boys and 12 girls to take part in the competition. Therefore we had our own mini cross country event in school on Friday 1st May at lunchtime, where the children who didn't make it to the District competition could compete with one another. The children fully embraced the opportunity and we had lots of supporters cheering them on too! Well done to everyone involved in the Priory Cross Country - we shall definitely do this again in the future!
We had cool and showery weather for the District Competition - perfect for running! We were joined by parents and grandparents over at the venue and the children representing our school did so brilliantly! Even though it was a gruelling race, the Priory children were full of smiles (once they had their breath back) and had proven highly successful, with many of the boys and girls finishing within the first 100 children! There were a total of 12 schools taking part (144 children per race).
A big thank you also goes out to Mrs. Cullingworth who gave up her time to help us train and also to support us on the day. Without her it wouldn't have been possible and we are very grateful to her and our other adult supporters on the day! Well done children too, we're looking forward to next year's event already!
