Miss Golawska – PE Subject Leader

Sporting Successes:  Deans Sports Partnership Cup Winners for the third year in a row

A Vital Part of the Curriculum

Our Lady of Lourdes believes that Sport and Physical Education is integral to our pupils’ education and wellbeing. We have many sporting successes at both local school and county level. By offering a wide range of curricular and extra curricular activities we aim to give every child a chance to participate in and enjoy sport.

Sports Leaders

Children in years 3 – 6 have the opportunity to become ‘Sports Leaders’. These children will be involved in many tasks throughout the year, helping the school and supporting Miss Golawska in her role. They may be asked to help organise sporting fixtures, referee/umpire games being played by younger children, update the notice board, audit and order PE equipment and maintain the equipment we already have, as well as having plenty of opportunities to represent the school in sporting fixtures. 

Autumn Term 2021 PE Update

We have made an excellent start to the Autumn term and I can safely say that all at Our Lady of Lourdes are incredibly happy to be participating in sporting events once again! 

This year, we will be competing against other schools in many city wide events. These events will take place throughout the year and will cover a wide range of sports and activities. Many of these events are competitions, where points and medals will be awarded but some will also be festival events, where the children can go along, participate in friendly competition, perhaps learn a new skill and have lots of fun too! 


In November, year 5 and 6 were very excited to be given the opportunity to participate in a football tournament organised by ‘Albion in the Community’. Both the boys and the girls teams played in a number of games throughout the day of their tournament, competing against some incredibly tough and well skilled teams. Both of the teams scored many goals on the day and were only a few points away from qualifying and making it through to the semi-finals. All staff members who attended the tournaments congratulated the teams on not only their effort and impressive performances but also on their fantastic sporting attitude; always being respectful to the other teams and referees, praising their own team as well as others and, most importantly, always playing with a huge smile on their face. Well done year 5 and 6 – we’re all incredibly proud of you. Watch this space year 3 and 4…it will be your turn soon!

Cross Country

Our second event of the year, in November, was a 2km cross country. It was a lovely afternoon at Waterhall, with perfect weather conditions. Many children from year 5 and 6 were selected to represent our school. With over 1200 children competing on the day, this was a huge and at times, daunting event for our runners but that certainly did not put them off. All of the children that took part managed to complete the race, which is a massive achievement in itself. A special mention to our year 5 boys’ team, who came 2nd overall in the whole event, with 3 of our boys finishing in the top 20. A huge well done to everyone who participated – you were an absolute credit to our school and we’re incredibly proud of you all.
