Raglan Sports News

To get the most up to date sport and PE information, follow the Raglan Schools Twitter page.

We have noticed that some children are not attending the after school clubs they have been allocated.  If your child no longer wishes to attend a club, please let us know so we can offer their place to another child.

It has been great to see our children "Running to Tokyo," this week, but we'd love to see even more of our KS2 pupils coming for a run in the mornings.  You can find out all the details for Run To Tokyo, Click Here

We are always keen for our children to participate in sport outside of school.   We have contacts with a large number of external clubs for both boys and girls in a variety of sports.  If your child would like to continue playing a sport or would like to get some extra practice, in time for the December trials please get in contact with some of the clubs listed here.

If any children would like a pair of football boots for free, please ask them to see a member of the PE Team.  If you have any boots lying around at home, we are always very grateful for donations. We are particularly in need of sizes 1,2 and 3 boots at the moment as lots of our Year 3’s are starting to play sport for the first time.
