Sunday 27th May 2018 will live long in the memory of our year 5/6 football team who not only got to play at Wembley in a national final but also went on to win the game 3 v 0.
The final was as a result of entering the EFL Kids cup competition which started with the club round at AFC Wimbledon back in November. Having comprehensively navigated this competition, we went to Oxford to play in the regional finals in March which saw us impressively beat Southend 3v1 in an entertaining final.
In the final we were pitched up against South Failsworth Primary School from Manchester who were representing Oldham Athletic and playing at Wembley for the fourth time. We thought we had done amazingly well to get there for a second time!

On Tuesday 1st May our Year 6 football team played Whitgift School in the Surrey County Finals at Leatherhead Youth. Following a successful season which has seen the team win all 10 league games and 3 cup games, they were searching for the perfect ending. Having played Whitgift in the final in the past three years, we knew we were in for a tough game but given our success in the final last year, we were confident we could be crowned champions once again.
This academic year has seen the school running club go from strength to strength. In total we have 331 children signed up for the club which equates to nearly half the pupil population at Cleves. It is great to see so many children committed to arriving at school at 8am on a Thursday morning and running with their friends. Many of these, over the course of the year, have completed the distance of a marathon and received their medal for doing so at the end of the spring term. In fact, there are a large number of children who have attended the club every single week since September in rain, wind, sun and even snow!
Huge congratulations to our Year 6 Sportshall Athletics team who finished runners up at the Surrey County finals on Tuesday. In every event, they performed with fantastic determination winning the majority of their heats. Their dedication to turn up at 8am every Tuesday morning since November was certainly worth it. A fantastic team effort!

On Wednesday 10th January 2018, we received a surprise visit from Great Britain and England hockey captain Alex Danson MBE. Our commitment to developing our students to be the best they can be in competitive school sport was commemorated with a special assembly hosted by Alex, where Mr Nelson was presented with our special School Games Platinum Award and our Play Leaders had the opportunity to take part in a hockey masterclass with the two-time Olympic medallist.
