Sport at Churchend School 2019 - 2020


We have a very busy program of competitive and social sport at Churchend and this year is set to be action packed.


Here at Churchend we have always strived to promote a positive attitude towards participation in sports from boys and girls in all year groups. We believe that getting everybody involved and enthusiastic about some aspect of sport is the real key to success. With this in mind, we do our best to provide as many opportunities as possible for all our children to take part in a range of sports and activities at differing competitive levels.


Determination, commitment and effort are crucial to all success and we aim to reward these attributes through our sporting activities. Developing sportsmanship is the foundation of our coaching and participation in competitive games, something that we see flourish among our young athletes year after year.


Throughout the year there will be a variety of sports offered to KS2 both in and outside school. We are set to participate in a number of external competitions against other schools in the area in football, tag rugby, hockey, netball, cross country, athletics and cricket across the coming academic year. In KS1 we focus on developing multi-sports skills and football.


We are fortunate enough to offer a range of clubs in school to train and develop teams, as well as coaching from outside agencies in other sports such as judo and fencing.


*New this year at Churchend*


We will also be running inter-house events every 4 weeks in the children's PE lessons.

All these points will be collated throughout the year to give to an overall winner.


Good luck to everyone competing for Churchend School over the coming year.

27 September · Congratulations to the Year 4 Children at Churchend School - The had an amazing morning at the Boys and Girls Mixed County Football Qualifiers. The children were fantastic - unbeaten in 8 games, winning 7, drawing 1 and racking up 24 goals In the process! The children's skill, team play and hard work was a pleasure to watch! The children have now qualified for the Berkshire School Games, where the county finals will be held. Mr Ward, Mr Pearse and everybody at school are very proud of their achievement.

After 4 weeks and 10 teams competing fiercely in the inaugural NSSport Reading Cricket League, today brought the final hosted at Churched School. The final was a highly competitive match between Birch Copse and Churchend (Local rivals). Churchend won the toss and elected to field. The visitors started off a little shaky losing 2 wickets in opening over but after some big hitting and great running they recovered to post a challenging 223 to win. Churchend also lost a couple of wickets early on but recovered very quickly with some big hitting and smart running themselves. In the last over Churchend were 10 runs ahead so just needed to bat out the last over without losing wickets (minus 5 runs) - They did this very effectively with a single and 5 dot balls! Congratulations to Churchend School completing an 11 run win and the well deserved title of the first winners of the NSSport Reading Cricket League. GREAT WORK GUYS : )

Wow - What a Day! 6 boys/6 girls in Year 3 and 4 from Churchend School attended the Berkshire School Games today, competing in the Cricket🏏 Skills Event. It was a beautiful day 🌞 and before their event they got to take part in lots of different activities including Football, Mountain Biking, Step up challenge, Skiping and Face Painting. They then had a bit of lunch and chill out before their event! They then went over to compete against the best of Berkshire in their age group. There were some outstanding individual performances as well as a huge team spirit/effort! The children competed in several different Cricket Skill based challenges gaining points for each activity they competed in! The results were so close a point between 2nd and 3rd and then a point between 1st and 2nd! Soooooo close!! The results were announced and CHURCHEND SCHOOL were victorious : ) Miss Pickford, Mr Ward and Mr Pearse could not be any prouder - well done all involved!!
