In September 2016 the school was awarded the Gold Sainsbury’s School Games Award in recognition of the high quality PE provision and the number of pupils involved in extra-curricular PE activities. The award also recognises the way that the school develops talented young sports people and our participation and success in inter-school sports competitions.

Highlights of 2015/16:

  • In recognition of all great sport and PE that takes place at Marshfield Primary we have been awarded the Sainsburys School Games GOLD

  • Specialist tag rugby coaching for upper juniors in preparation for our participation in the interschool tag rugby league.
  • Participation in the Sportshall athletics competition involving relay, jumping and throwing events. Marshfield won the event on the evening but unfortunately our tallied scores were beaten the next week by a couple of huge schools so we just missed out on going to the final!
