Physical activity at Russell

Russell Lower School is proud of its sporting offer and achievements.
Each day a Premier Sports specialist teacher comes into school providing every child with an excellent, high quality PE lesson once a week.  This is in addition to the children's normal PE lesson with their teacher.
We belong to the Redborne School Partnership and benefit from all children taking part in sports festivals throughout the year.
We hold the Gold Games Mark and the RSP Gold Award.  We were hopeful of achieving the the Platinum Award last year however due to the Covid-19 pandemic this was not possible. We will be striving to achieve this once possible again.
Each year we have a competitive sports morning and many additional one-off PE wow sessions throughout the year such as: Balance bike sessions, Scooterbility, Bikeability,  Dr Bike Sessions, Walk to school week, Challenge Santa, spin bike art and the NSPCC 'Pants' obstacle challenge.
At Russell, we provide a rich variety of sporting clubs at lunchtime and after school.  The timetable changes each half term and children are notified via letters home in their book bags.
At lunchtimes, the children are provided with equipment so they can play games and be physical.  Sports Leaders go into all of our playgrounds and encourage the achievements of personal challenges (this is currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic)
We are very fortunate to have a large amount of outdoor space which is enhanced by our outdoor gym, 3 trim trails and larger pieces of equipment we already have around the school site.
If you would like more information about the sporting clubs we offer, please contact Mrs Bremner in the school office. ( 755664)
