On Thursday 1st December 2016, Christopher Pickering Primary School won the award for ‘Outstanding Sporting Achievement’ at the Hull Daily Mail’s first ever Golden Apple Awards!
Christopher Pickering was recognised as a school which went “above and beyond the requirements of the national curriculum.” and was also congratulated on its Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award.
We have been working in close partnership with Christopher Pickering this year. During this time we have delivered curriculum PE lessons, held teacher training CPD workshops and delivered assemblies and workshops to pupils about Sporting Values. They have also taken part in competitions in various sporting events.
Joy Sandford, CPPS PE Coordinator, says:
'Working with the Tigers Trust has given all the staff at CPPS a huge boost. After some fantastic CPD provided by the Tigers Trust and KS2 staff being able to observe lessons delivered by the coaches, teachers have new ideas and confidence to deliver outstanding PE lessons. This passion is transferred to the children at CPPS, making PE a significant part of our school culture. Our children love PE and strive to represent our school in competitions provided by the Tigers Trust and the School Games.'
Richard Dexter, Tigers Trust PE Coordinator, says:
“We are very proud to work in partnership with Christopher Pickering Primary School. It is fantastic for one of our partner schools to win such a prestigious award. It has been clear from the offset of our partnership that everyone at Christopher Pickering sees the importance of physical education. The pupils have shown a real desire to learn in our PE lessons, and the teaching staff have been very keen to work alongside our PE specialists and learn new ideas related to teaching PE.
We are looking forward to continuing to work closely with such a great school.”
