"I would like to thank my staff and in particular, Mrs Hubbard (PE Leader) for their hard work and commitment. Through our exciting school-based and extracurricular provision, and alongside our dedicated Sports Development Officer, they encourage our children to be healthy and active and to achieve positive mental health and wellbeing."
