Shropshire Primary PE & Sport Premium ‘Physical activity & health enhancing initiatives’ Award 2018

We are pleased to announce that Grange Park Primary School has won the Shropshire Primary PE & Sport Premium ‘Physical activity & health enhancing initiatives’ Award 2018. We won the award for our girls football leagues that we organise for Telford & Wrekin schools and also for our increase in participation of children competing at both District and County level from Grange Park. We’ve had over 180 different children represent a Grange Park sports team this academic year and have lots more events planned for next half term. We would like to thank all the staff that make these events possible, the parents for allowing their children to represent Grange Park and the children for always representing our school with pride and doing their best. We will now represent Shropshire at the West Midlands Regional awards #TeamGP

Sports Day 2018

Sports Day 2018

Unfortunately due to the news regarding our school field, we won’t be able to hold a traditional Sports Day this year at Grange Park. Instead Mr James will be running a Intra School Multi Skills Competition. This will involve every child In years 1-6 taking part in 6 fun sports activities with scores being recorded. The results will then be announced at the end of year sports assembly. We will have individual and team winners. Unfortunately parents wont be able to attend the fun activities because of not having the space without the field. We know this is disappointing but the children having some sort of sports day is our priority.

We will also organise a fun sports event for our reception children.

School Field Update

School Field Update

Unfortunately despite our school field looking amazing over the last couple of months, it failed the inspection 2 weeks ago and needs further work before we can start using it. The field was worked on over the weekend and has been cut, sanded and seeded again. Although this wasn’t the news we wanted, it will be worth it when its complete.

Well done to our Year 6 girls football team that tonight won the T&W Cup with an absolute faultless performance. The girls were amazing from the very first minute to the last. Our goalkeeper was fantastic when called upon and made an amazingly brave save at the beginning of the first half, our defence was solid at the back as usual, our midfielders were as creature as ever but had the work ethic to go with their ability and our strikers were deadly in front of goal. A perfect team that fully deserved their win. Well done #TeamGP

So Close!

So Close!

So proud of our Year 3/4 girls football team that lost 3-1 in tonight’s cup final. The girls were up against a very strong Redhill team but our girls matched them all the way and nearly made the match 2-2 with a minute left but the ball bobbled up with our striker through 1 on 1. Redhill then went up the other end and scored with the last kick of the game. The girls attitude throughout the match was outstanding and the fact they never gave up when being 2-0 down at half time shows their amazing character and determination. They gave their all and that’s all we ever ask for and they will bounce back stronger from this defeat. Well done girls #TeamGP

Year 3/4 Tennis Competition

Well done to our Year 3/4 Tennis team that competed in the T&W competition this morning. The team did amazing all morning and only missed out on topping their group by a few points. This meant unfortunately they wouldn’t go through to the finals, but they did win their last match of the morning with an impressive 34 – 12 score. Well done #TeamGP

Please come and make lots of noise for our #TeamGP girls

Absolutely amazing!

Absolutely amazing!

Well done to our Year 5/6 girls football team that today won the T&W tournament and now go through to play in the final at the Bucks Head Stadium against Old Park Primary on the primary schools final night. The girls played 5 matches, winning them all, scoring 15 and conceding 0. The girls have worked so hard all season leading up to today and it paid off with their fantastic results. We don’t normally mention individual goal scorers as we feel every goal is a team effort that usually starts from the back, but we can’t help but mention the goals in the semi final today. The girls spent easily 20 minutes before the tournament today working on corners and who would stand where and where we wanted the ball being crossed to. The girls took all this on board and it worked a treat with a fantastic corner floated in and an even better leaping header from Frances. You had to see the header to appreciate how good it was.

We also think Grange Park have made history by being the first school to have a girls team in both the 3/4 and 5/6 finals in the same year. Absolutely amazing girls.

Year 3/4 Telford & Wrekin Cup

Year 3/4 Telford & Wrekin Cup

Well done to our year 3/4 football team that competed in the Telford & Wrekin football tournament this afternoon at TCAT.

The children were an absolute credit to the school again and we couldn’t be any prouder of their performances. The team won their first match 3-0 against Aqueduct, drew their 2nd 0-0 with Short Wood and won their third match 2-0 against one of the favourites Ladygrove.

This meant whoever won the match between ourselves and a very good St Patricks team would get through to the semi finals. The game was extremely tight and Grange Park looked to have built a brick wall that St Patricks couldn’t get through, but then with a few minutes left they scored a thunderous free kick that our goalkeeper nearly saved tipping the ball onto the post but it just crept in.

We then went all out and nearly scored ourselves but it just wasn’t to be our day today.

St Patricks then went on to win their semi final and the final, so our team only lost to the eventual winners.

We couldn’t be any prouder of these fantastic footballers tonight, not only for their performance on the pitch but for their fantastic attitude after defeat as well.
