From learning new skills to competing for trophies, sport has become a key feature of Chapelford Village Primary School's success stories this year with children of all ages getting a chance to take part. 

The Warrington school, which is part of Omega Multi-Academy Trust, has been looking at ways to develop sport for pupils. The school has not only taken part in competitions across Cheshire, but has also organised events for other schools to get involved in too. 

Earlier this year boys and girls football teams made the final of their event. The Year 4 girls, who won locally in Warrington, went on to represent the school amongst Cheshire schools and played in the Warrington Finals. While our Year 6 boys team were crowned Year 6 champions at this year’s Warrington finals! 

The school finished 2nd in the local Sports Hall Athletics competition earning them a well-deserved spot in other competitions. Jacob and Sienna, won the boy's and girl's category beating around 110 boys and 110 girls to the top spot.

The school also hosted their first inter-school Omega MAT Athletic competition, which the Year 6s participated in.  

School gymnasts got the chance to show some serious skills when they represented the school in competitive events this year. Some athletes, from our Year 6 and Year 4 team, qualified for the county finals and were given the opportunity to go to a fantastic facility in Northwich to compete again. 

One of the most popular sports in KS2 has been rugby with teams from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 participating in tag rugby non-competitive festivals and a rugby finals match. Year 5 and 6 squads also got the chance to go to Halliwell Jones stadium to play in the Fire 7s competition. 

This year budding golfers were invited to a Tri Golf competition. The Year 4 and 6 teams won the Tri Golf competitions and thoroughly enjoyed the day coming away with medals and certificates for winning both age groups. 

Mr Capper said: “At Chapelford, we strive to make the competitions and sporting opportunities as broad and as inclusive as possible.
“One of our next sporting projects is to fully develop and run the inter-school competitions between the schools within the trust and the inter-year group competitions solely for children of Chapelford.

“We are hopeful, and really excited, that more sporting opportunities will come the way of our Chapelford children.

“There has been plenty of sporting success to celebrate across this school year. We are incredibly lucky to have such a wide range of talent here at Chapelford and it really does show that we have some sporting superstars of the future. 

“A huge well done to all of our teams and to the children who dedicated their time to after-school sport clubs, too.”
