Sport has a very high profile at Earl Spencer. High quality PE is delivered, throughout the school, by Mr Birtwistle & Mr Hancock, our Sports' coaches. Key Stage 1 follow the REAL PE scheme, which is designed to develop holistic physical skills from an early age. As children move through the school, lessons develop into an increased emphasis on competitive sports. Earl Spencer is part of the Duston Cluster of schools, which runs training sessions for staff and competitions for children in Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. All schools in the cluster participate in this project.
Additionally, we run many sports' clubs for the children, some of which are free to access. We also bringing in specialists, subsidising clubs in karate, rhythmic gymnastics and street dance & yoga, for example.
In July 2014, we were very proud, as one of only 3 schools in the town, to achieve our 'Silver Award' from the Sainsburys' School Games organisers.
In July 2019 we were proud to maintain our status as a Sainsburys' School Games 'Gold Award' school! Our aim is to achieve the 'Platinum Award' in the next 18 months.
