Friday 6th October 2017
A fantastic well done to our runners who took part in the annual Hope Valley Cross Country race which was organised and run by Mrs Cook and her fantastic team of Sports Leaders at HVC. Unusually, the weather was kind and the children all enjoyed a lovely autumnal afternoon. For some children, it was their first Cross Country event and whether they won or not, all of our children should be congratulated for taking part.
Winner of KS1 Trophy
3. Gt Hucklow
Winner of KS2 Trophy
The results from the event are as follows:

Thanks go to our Sports Leaders for organising the inter-house competitions this half term. Their efforts have been amazing and many children have now benefited from their efforts.
Huge thanks to John for leading our Sporting Festival 2017. We decided, following the success of our Road to Rio event last year, to make our annual Sainsbury's Sports Day become a Sainsbury's Sports Festival to allow a greater celebration of all things sporting to take place. Despite the rain, our children all had fun. The four house teams were very close and full result have been posted in School. We were really proud of the resilience of our children and their great sense of fair play which allowed everyone to succeed and have fun. Our thanks to the REC Committee who let us use the REC Pavillion for the event.
Following the completion of four training sessions, our Y5/6 team enjoyed a very sunny Friday Afternoon at the Rec in Hope participating in the local TAG RUGBY event. Both our A and B teams played really well and our A team achieved a credit worthy 3rd place, against some very tough opposition! Well done to all, especially our B team whose spirits were never dampened! Great resilience and a good team spirit all helped by fantastic summer weather and great organisation by the Rugby company.
The children enjoyed a fantastic day out at the English Institute of Sport. They behaved really well and had a lot of fun. We would like to thank Ruth Cook from HVC and her fantastic organising committee whose hard work provided us with a great sporting event!

Well done to all for your efforts. We are very proud of you all.
Well done to our Y6 children who braved some awful weather to finish their Bikeability Training. Feedback from Glyn was very positive and we hope that you will continue to use your bikes safely out on the roads - possibly even reducing your carbon footprint and cycling to school next year to HVC!!
The infants all really enjoyed their Infant Sports Day which was hosted by Ruth Cook and her team of Sports Leaders at HVC. It is clear that we have some very strong and able infants and we look forward to their continued sporting success. Infant running club is clearly helping to build stamina and enjoyment of sports.
Another fantastic event hosted by the HVC Sports Leaders. Our teams did really well under the guidance and leadership of Mrs Bland and a fun and competitive day was had by all. Overall we came 3rd - well done!
Another fantastic local sporting event was held - this time our children were playing rounders - always one of the more competitive meetings of the year. Our children played really well as a team and had a lot of fun (and exercise). All the throwing and catching practice clearly worked and we finished a very respectable 3rd place. Well done all!
The Y5/Y6 teams played fantastically and came first in the local cluster competition. They progressed to the next round of the competition where they performed well. Unfortunately, they were unable to progress any further due to stiff competition from some much larger schools who fielded Y6 only teams.
Mrs Cook visited school to watch and help our Y5/Y6 children with their gymnastics. She was very impressed with their hard work and good progress. Individuals from Mrs Bland's Gymnastics Club and from Class Willow entered a local competition at HVC and all did really well.
The Y5/Y6 teams played really well at the local cluster event and importantly, worked incredibly well as a team. Mrs Bland was particularly impressed with their passing and marking. On the day, they were unlucky not to progress to the next round, coming 3rd = with Hope. Well done Team Bamford.
Bamford school was very proud to have been awarded the Gold Sainsbury's School Games Award for 2015/16. Well done to all, especially our amazing children and our fantastic parents who offer vital moral and transport support. This is the first time we have been awarded GOLD - and we are working hard to ensure that we keep it. A major goal is to get everyone involved in Healthy Lifestyles and to increase participation to all.
WE GOT IT!!!!
We will soon be re-running our Sports Leaders training for Y5 and Y6 children. The Sports Leaders programme is currently being reviewed to ensure that this can be incorporated with our PLAYPOD teams.
