Peckover Primary was named as the BWT Active Primary School 2019 at the recent Trust Sports Awards and many of our students picked up prizes for their sporting endeavours.

Well done to Evie Suckling who was named Peckover’s Sports Performer of the Year. The audience heard that she is ‘extremely committed to gymnastics, she trains often and performs in a number of demanding shows while still working hard at school.’

Tommy Houghton was the winner of the Individual Achievement Award. Trust Director of Sport, Kirstie Smith said: ‘Tommy has excelled this year at tag rugby at Peckover. I teach him personally and I am so proud of him to win this award.’

Camilla Gwexela was given the Outstanding Contribution to Leadership award for her involvement with the lunchtime rugby club: ‘She has led the club with great enthusiasm, demonstrating excellent leadership qualities.’

Well done to our football team who were nominated for Primary Team of the Year for their hard work and sportsmanship.

Finally Peckover won the BWT Active Primary School of the Year, beating the other four primaries in the Trust. Kirstie Smith said: ‘This year we have focused on boosting physical activity within our schools with the introduction of a daily physical activity task such as the Daily Mile and Go Noodle. The Daily Mile makes children fitter, healthier, happier and has a positive impact on their behaviour and concentration levels. It is simple but effective, enabling every child, including those with special needs, to be active every day. Go Noodle is a video tool which encourages pupils to move with purpose to a variety of videos across the curriculum.

‘In terms of deciding who wins this award I looked at the data from the schools, how many miles and how many minutes they had done. Peckover Primary School clocked up 3,227 Go Noodle minutes beating all the other schools in the Trust. Well done to Peckover!’
