St. Michael's Primary School P.E & Sport Page

The Vision

All pupils to leave St. Michael’s Primary School physically literate and with the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

In 2015 St. Michael's Primary School received the silver Sainsbury's School Games award for its commitment to and development of competition, school sport and physical education. 


Active 5

St. Michael’s introduced ‘Active 5’ to the curriculum in 2015-2016. Every day at 11.55 a.m the whole school puts pen and paper down to partake in a 5 minute physical activity exercise. This could involve physical workouts or dances which are demonstrated and copied from the school’s interactive whiteboards, or demonstrated by teachers or children volunteers. When the weather is fair, classes are also encouraged to go for a 5 minute run around the school field. The whole initiative has been a huge success and the children look forward to it every day.

London Youth Games 2014 promotional video

In 2013 the school's tag rugby team represented Haringey at the London Youth Games at Crystal Palace. Watch the promotional video below for 2014 carefully (28 secs) and you will see St. Michael's in action. Players to look out for are Bryn, Toby, Ben, Emily, and Mia. It was the second time in two years the school represented the borough in this event.

The London Youth Games involves champion schools from every London borough competing in an exciting 'Olympic' style event. It certainly is something that all schools can aspire to attend. We hope St. Michael's can attend once more in some other disciplines. Events include hockey, athletics, golf, football, rugby, swimming, and tennis amongst many others.

We have a special new relationship with the London Skolars Rugby League coaching team, who now regularly coach at the school. The Skolars invited St. Michael's to the PCubed Rugby Challenge Event at Moorgate in January 2014. The children met rugby league legend Martin Offiah and took part in a special invitation tag rugby tournament. The PCubed event also involved forming of a guard of honour for the Capital Challenge match between London Skolars and Wigan Warriors.
