Clifton Primary have been presented with some significant awards for our commitment to physical activity and ensuring children are active.  

Firstly, we received our third successive GOLD school Games Mark, Modeshift stars Silver and raised over £2,000 for Moseley Baths.

We were delighted to have come first in the ‘Whole School Improvement Award’ section in the Birmingham Primary PE and Sports Premium Annual Awards which recognised the work done across the school in terms of competition, leadership and SEND sport.  We will continue to drive the health agenda forward and look for innovative ways to keep our families healthy!

Dedicated Daily milers

Earlier this term the ITV and Sport Birmingham cameras and film crew came in to highlight the work we are doing to make children active every day.  In the spotlight was our introduction of the ‘Daily Mile’ Scheme, which allows children to run or walk for 15 minutes every day, during curriculum time.  We have already noticed the positive impact this has had on fitness levels, concentration in class and will now study its impact on academic achievement. A special mention to Miss Roachford, who was the star of the show!  Click here to watch the report.
