Sporting Achievements

Sports is an important part of life at Newlands Spring Primary and Nursery School.  The school has a very active PE curriculum as well as several extra-curriculum clubs. We welcome in outside agencies to help develop our children further and to get them involved in a wide range of activities. 

Children take part in many different sporting events in-house and against other schools. Competitions are arranged through the local schools partnership so that teams can compete against their own peers in the local area. Parents are invited to cheer all their children on during these competitions and during our annual sports days
