For all St Richard's sports teams, selection is based primarily on ability, with each child’s commitment, consistency and behavioural attitude then taken into account. We impress upon the children the responsibility that comes with representing the school within the wider community. These factors are assessed on an on-going basis through the year, during PE lessons, clubs and training sessions.
For certain events, such as the Borough Sports competition in the summer, the PE lessons beforehand will be used as trial events to help select the best team.
If two children are at a similar level, a Year 6 child would generally be chosen ahead of a younger child as they have fewer opportunities remaining before leaving the school.
We are delighted with the growing enthusiasm for sport within the school, as reflected by the increased demand for places in the various football, tag rugby, running, basketball and gymnastics clubs.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions,
Andrew Neill (PE Co-ordinator)
