Sports & Clubs
From the summer term of Year 2 and then throughout Key Stage our children take part in a 10 minute daily run. They are given rewards and incentives each week to help keep them motivated and then take part in a timed mile once a term so that they can keep track of their own fitness.

At Sacred Heart we have a great number of sports clubs available to the children. We try to encourage the children to take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day. We have a wide range of sports teams and take part in sporting events in the local area and beyond.
As we have so much physical activity taking place during the school we are in the process of introducing a school tracksuit to form part of the school uniform.
