Our Sporting Partnerships & Achievements
As a school we are very proud to work with Active Schools Leeds and the Leeds South & Central School Sport Partnership and take part in competitive school sport gaining a School Games Gold Award for our participation in local competitions for 2 years running.
To achieve the Gold Award we have evidence to show our increased participation in inter-schools competitions, and have also been able to show the increased participation of sport across the whole school at individual pupil level; here are some of our stats:
Children at Ingram Road have access to 10 afterschool sports clubs, including; Dazl dance (KS2), Total Dance (KS1) multisport (KS1), multisport (KS2), sportshall athletics, netball, U11 Football, Leeds United Girls football, Leeds Rhinos rugby and active club (KS1). For which we have an extremely high uptake.
Children access at least 15 minutes of dance (15 min session for each Phase Foundation –UKS2) every lunch time to keep them healthy and active, run by total dance, as well as access to lots of other engaging sports activities such as; football, rounders, tag rugby and lacrosse.
In 2016, the whole school took part in their very own race for life, which raised £564 (a school record) for Cancer Research UK. The children were extremely engaged and even came to school dressed in pink and blue to support the cause.
Ingram Road has staff who are dedicated to pupil engagement in sport with 4 teaching assistants running clubs and lunch time activities. These staff members being fantastic role models towards the children.
We have achieved the Gold school games mark, due to our increased participation in physical activity, of which we are extremely proud of.
In 2015/16 we participated in a record number of sports events attending 20 fixtures/events, even attending 2 finals at the TSLA and winning 2 trophies (which we believe may be down to our new lucky kit, which we look great in).
In 2016/17 we were highly commended by Active Schools Leeds' Awards night for promoting 60 minutes of exercise a day.
