Race for Life – Supporting Cancer Research

Although we will not be able to have parents at the traditional annual sports day event, we have organised a Sports Week which will take place between Monday 12th July until Friday 16th July.

During the Sports Week, the children will take part in a range of activities related to sport, fitness and fun.

One of the activities that the children will undertake is a long-distance run (made appropriate for different age groups).  However, the run itself will also have a focus on supporting charity as this will be organised in partnership with Cancer Research UK.

All children who participate will receive a Race for Life medal for their efforts.

Why are we supporting this charity?

As a lot of families will understand, this is an important charity which does a great deal of good work in the aim to beat cancer.

The current rate of cancer means that statistically 1 in every 2 people will have some form cancer in their lifetime.  This makes the possibility of supporting charities who work in this area, vitally important.

Keeping Fit to Keep Well

Over the week – with specific events such as the Race for Life – we will be emphasising to children the need to be healthy for our long-term health.  Since returning to school, we have made this a priority within PE and at break/lunch periods.

Next year, our curriculum will continue to focus on health, in many ways, as this pandemic has highlighted, once again, the need for us to teach our children to develop the lifestyles which will help them to live long and happy lives.

Fantastic! Focusing on the children's physical and mental health, whilst raising money for Cancer Research at the same time.
