7th July, 2017 - After 2 exciting weeks of  inter-school 'dance-offs', a group of children were voted by Cottingley Village Primary School to demonstrate their skills at Beckfoot Heaton Dance Competition.  All of the children had a great time and danced their socks off!  Thank you to Beckfoot Heaton, who hosted the tournament brilliantly.


6th July, 2017 - Heaton Tennis Club came to Cottingley.  Carrie spotted some real talent and has invited all of our budding tennis players in Year 2 and Year 3 to a free coaching session at her club!


22nd May, 2017 - TRIATHLON at Bradford Grammar School.  Year 5 and 6 children had a brilliant time swimming, cycling and running.


4th May, 2017 - Congratulations to our Year 3/4 Boys Cross Country Team, who won the Cross Country Relay event.  Well done George Trevethick, Logan Walker and Harrison Sumner.  You did the school proud! 

They were ably supported by our B-team (Alex Caldwell, Joshua Thorlby, James Uttley and Finnley Wilkinson). COLLABORATION and PERSEVERANCE are clearly a strength at our school.

18th March, 2017 - Bingley School's Swimming Gala

Well done to the swimming team who made it through to the finals of the Bingley School's Swimming Gala, which was held at Shipley Pool in March. 

School is very grateful to The Nuffield Health Centre who allowed the swimming team to use their pool facilities for training before the event. 

CROSS COUNTRY CLUB every Tuesday:  Let's get fit for the upcoming Cross Country Races!

Well done to Logan Walker, who came 16th in the West Yorkshire Cross Country Championship.  

Logan's tips for cross country success: train hard, pace yourself and then speed up towards the end.

What a star!

Sports Leaders give up one lunchtime a week to organise games and activities for younger children in the playground.  

This is what children said about our sports leaders:

  • Hamza Sarajudeen (Year 2) - "I like the Sports Leaders because they make sure that everything is OK for us. I like the music with the sport!"
  • Sulaiman Khan (Year 4) - "You get to do things that you don't normally do - I was goalie when I don't normally get that chance".
