In the Loop
A weekly information sheet updating you about PE and Sport Developments in our schools.
Week Commencing 5th December 2022

Due to the fact that the majority of schools are unable to make the 14th December, we have taken the decision to postpone this event after all.  This will now be held on 25th January at Herne Bay High School from 1-3.30pm.  Unfortunately, spectators will not be permitted.  Please let us know/confirm your entries as soon as possible and also complete and return the attached Entry Form to Hannah or Gemma by Friday 13th January.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

Please confirm whether you or a representative from your school will be attending the PE Co-ordinator Meeting on Monday 16th January 2023 2-3.30pm (venue TBC).  The meeting will cover Sports Partnership areas but will also have a section on deep dives in PE.

Below are the competitions taking place during Term 3 and entry is now open.  Further details/team requirements etc are given in your Competition Handbook.  Please be reminded that there is a maximum number of teams that we can accommodate so entries are on a first come first served basis but must be received by the entry deadline stated.  Where more than one team has been requested, please note that this is not definite until confirmed by us.
