School Games Mark Gold
We are once again celebrating after being recognised for our commitment to competitive sport and participation levels by achieving the prestigious Gold Sainsbury’s School Games Mark award for the third year running. Schools who apply are either awarded gold, silver or bronze with the award recognised by Ofsted.

This not only recognises the large numbers of children who participate in competitive sport at Cleves but also celebrates the sporting provision at the school and in particular the number of extra curricular clubs children at Cleves participate in. Congratulations to all involved.

District Sports
In the middle of June nearly 70 Cleves pupils took part in the annual district sports competition at Stompond Lane. Following hours of practice at the Tuesday morning running club the team were victorious winning the overall competition by a huge 20 point margin. We also won the individual year 5 and year 6 competition, and finished 3rd in the Year 4 competition and 4th in the Year 3 competition. Congratulations to everyone who took part - it was a real team effort.

Rounders

Year 6
There was a keen group of boys and girls that wanted to improve their skills in rounders and attended lunchtime club for the second half of the summer term.  They showed real determination in the Elmbridge Schools competition held at Cardinal Newman School. They came up against some tough opposition, fought to the end and improved every game, in scorching temperatures. There was also a true display of leadership within the team and they all worked well together.

Year 5
Mrs Cummings and a group of enthusiastic children played in a tournament at St James on Tuesday. They were great ambassadors for Cleves as they were extremely resilient and demonstrated great positivity. All of the team thoroughly enjoyed representing the school. Well done to Freya, Sarah, Brooke, Kate, Charlie, William, David, Maxi, Seb, Joseph, Josh and Nathan!

Notre Dame Cross Country Relays
In early June a team of girls in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 took part in the cross country relay event at Notre Dame. Competing against the private schools in the area, on what was a very hot day, the girls ran brilliantly finishing 4th overall. Once again it was a real team event which included some exceptional individual performances.

Cricket
There have been several cricket tournaments this term, with Year 6 girls and boys teams playing at the Claygate Cricket Club tournament, and Year 5 taking part in a mixed cricket tournament at Reeds School. Everyone played excellently, with great resilience. Both the Year 6 girls and Year 5 mixed teams came mid-table, and thoroughly enjoyed their days, showing some excellent teamwork along the way.

The Year 6 boys cricket team played some excellent cricket over several tournaments, progressing through to a fantastic day playing at the Kia Oval in the Surrey County finals.  They won both their group games and then managed to navigate through a tricky semi final match. In the final, they played brilliantly winning by nearly 50 runs. They were crowned Surrey County and South East Champions, with a strong performance which deserved the title.

Sports Day
What a fantastic two days! We had superb weather, great support by parents and great sporting participation from all the children. The children thoroughly enjoyed cheering on their team’s colour and being a part of a team.

Overall, the blue team won by only 13 points. Both days were very close and it was lovely to see so many different activities available for the children to access and to then finish with some competitive fun. Heathside’s Sports Leaders were excellent and really encouraged our children to do their best and helped the morning run smoothly. If you have any suggestions for activities you would like to see included or ideas for the day please email me: anelson@cleves.co.uk

Thank you parents for encouraging, supporting, cheering all the children on and for being good sports at the end and running in your own race.
