School Sports & PE
At Gorseybrigg we provide a wide range of sporting opportunities for all children. We are part of the North East Derbyshire School Sport Partnership (NEDSSP) who provide a programme of events throughout the year. There are opportunities for children to participate in whole class, individual and team events both during and after the school day.
In September a group of children from Year 5 were trained as mini-leaders. They have been doing a superb job at lunchtimes of organising activities for the younger children and many have already achieved their silver award.
Year 1 attended a multi-skills event at Gosforth Fields alongside 3 other local skills. The leaders from Henry Fanshawe did a great job and the children had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
In October, a group of children from Years 4-6 had the opportunity of attending a Soccer-festival at Henry Fanshawe. They were taught new football skills and demonstrated the core values.
