We pride ourselves on being very active and healthy at Kidmore End School. We have the opportunity to learn lots of different sports and can take part in different competitions throughout the year.
Since September 2013 schools have been provided with specific PE and Sports Funding to improve PE provision and access to competition. This has allowed us to focus resources to great effect and led to successes in football, cross country, swimming and notably in Athletics, where Year Five and Six reached the County Final in both Sports Hall Athletics and Quad Kids, finishing the year as Quad Kids County Champions.
You can find out more about the impact of last year's funding and how we are spending this year's allocation in the documents below. The guidance for spending funds can be found on the DfE website using this link.

Children in Years 3 and 4 swim as part of their National Curriculum PE provision. Lessons take place at Queen Anne's School and are provided by Swimday. We are required to publish details of swimming attainment which can be found in the Impact report below.
Our oldest pupils are being trained as Active Leaders. They will then be able to support peaceful playtimes, run clubs and activities and support sports and healthy living across the school.
- School Games Silver Award
School Games Silver Award
Our work to involve everyone in sport and inter-school competition has been recognised by the award of the Silver School Games Mark.
We are delighted to announce that we, Kidmore End CE Primary School, have achieved the School Games Silver Mark Award for the 2018/19 academic year.
The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
- Cross Country
Many of our pupils have enjoyed taking part in the monthly Cross Country races organised for South Oxfordshire Primary Schools this year. Races take place Saturday mornings (usually at Maiden Erlegh Chiltern Edge) and run from September until February each year. A series of races run for children in years 1 to 6.
When the Autumn/Winter Cross Country schedule for 2021/22 is available we shall upload it here.
