Football Champions!!

This has been a triumphant season for the Dovecote boys football team as they finished top of the Clifton schools 7 a side league. They won 7 of their 8 games, scoring 29 goals in the process and conceding just 5! After a disappointing defeat to Milford in November, the boys went on a 5 game winning streak to win the championship in style!

18 different children have represented the team this year and all made a positive contribution! The children have won plaudits from spectators, both for the way they play the game and , crucially, for the respectful attitude they have shown to each other, opponents and officials!

The future is bright for next season as well!  The year 5 team have been playing in a city wide 5 a side tournament and, at the time of writing, are through to the semi finals! 

Well done to everyone who has played for the school football team this year and a big thank you to all the supporters who have been cheering us on in every game!

Sports Funding at Dovecote

With the advent of the Olympic Legacy, funding this academic year, we decided to work with a qualified sports coach to deliver high quality Physical Education to children working in Reception to year three, enabling staff to participate with the children and enhance their own understanding of the skills being taught. This is a valuable Curriculum Professional Development tool for all staff.
