Sport at Challock

What sport takes place at Challock Primary School?


In addition to two PE lessons per week, we also run Level 1 Intra-School Competition including House Netball, Football, Cricket, Cross-Country, Hockey, Boccia, Kurling and Sports Day. Our older pupils participate actively in these events, managing teams and helping run Sports Day. Our School Sports Leaders, following training, also contribute to PE sessions and lead events such as indoor athletics with our younger pupils, the results of which go into a 'Digital' House Competition.


Furthermore, we have a range of extra-curricular clubs led by both school staff and clubs/coaches from the community including football, netball, Tag Rugby (alongside Ashford Rugby Club), Cricket, Athletics, Rounders, Tri-golf, Speed Stacking, and Fitness. We also deliver taster sessions in school for other sports such as with Charing Tennis Club.

We also take part in The Daily Mile a social physical activity, with our pupils running or jogging at their own pace in the fresh air with friends over 15 minutes.


We work with Primary Sports Giants (, a company we use for Staff CPD on delivering PE and also Healthy-eating sessions, and extra events such as our '100% Event' Nerf Wars for our Infant and Junior pupils and Balance Bikes for our Reception pupils.

School Games GOLD Mark Award


We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2022/23 academic year - this is the third time in a row we have earned this level.


The School Games Mark is a Government-led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward and recognise school’s engagement (provision and uptake) in the School Games against a national benchmark and to celebrate keeping young people active, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.


We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our events possible. We are committed to using the School Games to try and engage those young people who haven’t previously been active or represented our school and to try and ensure that all our students have a positive experience and want to try out new activities beyond school too in our community. We believe in the power of physical activity and school sport as a school and give opportunities to those young people that need it most either as a participant, leader, official or volunteer. As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas linked to the five School Games outcomes and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.


We look forward to applying once again in 2024!
