Sport at Stanton

Wow! What a great way to start the school year! Our Year 5s and 6s travelled to Tideswell and competed against local schools in the football tournament. Both teams played unbelievably well and were great representatives of our school. Despite several injuries (we’ve never needed so many ice-packs in one afternoon), our all-girls team battled their way through their fixtures - winning every game (Longstone 3-1, Bakewell Juniors 4-0 and Tideswell 1-0). Unfortunately, the competition format meant that the top 2 sides played each other in a final game to decide who took home the trophy. Tideswell played an exceptional match and were deserved winners. Our mixed team of boys and girls also played some fantastic football, scoring some wonderful goals along the way. Goal difference meant that they missed out on a place in the final. Spirits in both teams were high throughout the afternoon. After observing both teams, tournament organisers awarded Stanton with the ‘TEAMWORK’ award. Another trophy for our cabinet and further evidence of the amazing qualities our pupils have. Proud, as always ⚽️⚽️⚽️

This afternoon, we entered 3 (three!!) teams into the year 5 and 6 netball tournament at Great Longstone. One of our teams finished runners up and our three teams collectively won the ‘teamwork’ award. It was extremely pleasing that so many of our pupils wanted to take part in the tournament. Huge congratulations to everyone involved. 🏆

Wow! What an achievement! Today, 8 pupils represented our school at the Derbyshire Dales Sports-Hall Athletics Finals. The event was held at Highfields Secondary School and our athletics team competed against schools from across the Derbyshire Dales. The standard of athletics was high and after all track and field events had been taken into account, there was little separating the top three teams. This meant a nervous wait whilst the organisers totalled up the points and a real sense of tension when the results were finally announced. A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PUPILS WHO WON GOLD! 🥇 Whilst only 8 pupils attended the finals, credit goes to all of the Year 5 and 6 pupils, who all played a vital role in qualification. Earlier this term, a squad of 25 pupils finished joint first in the Lady Manners cluster competition earning us a place at today’s finals. 🥇

Another shiny trophy for our sports cabinet! Not only did our Year 5s and 6s finish joint first at the Sportshall Athletics Competition in Sheffield this afternoon, but they also brought home the ‘Self Belief Trophy’. Believing in ourselves is important - it opens doors and allows us to take chances, step out of our comfort zones and live our lives to the full. The pupils demonstrated this in abundance whilst competing against extremely talented opposition today. Another proud moment for our school 🏃‍♂️ 🏃‍♀️ 🏃🏽
