Every year at SWF we offer our children a number of opportunities to represent our schools in a range of competitions. We take part in a number of Inter-School, School Games Competitions across our calendar year, as well as our SWF varsity competitions.
Our Inter-School competitions are where a number of schools from Sheppey and Sittingbourne compete against each other for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. If these competitions are also part of the School Games Events the winning school will get to go to the county finals to represent our area.
Our SWF varsity fixtures are events which are run with-in our schools. We are lucky enough to have two schools (West Minster and Rose Street) making up the Sheerness West Federation. Each term teams are selected to represent each school and take part in a competition against each other. The winning school then gets to keep the varsity shield for the following term until the next event. We have run this for the last two years. The first year West Minster ran out the overall winners while last year Rose Street came out on top. We are looking forward to seeing who wins this year!
Our competitions for term 1 are;
|Cross Country||Year 3-6||25th September||Oasis Minster Site||2:30-4:30|
|Football||Year 5-6||2nd October||Oasis Minster Site||2:30- 4:30|

Our cross country competition is now complete! All the children who took part had a fantastic day and they all completed the course which is over a mile and half in distance! We are extremely proud of all the children who took part today, as always you did our school proud! Our highest finish of the day was 17th place in the girls year 6 race.
Our football competition for this term is now complete. We took two teams on the day made up of 11 children. For many of our team it was their first opportunity to represent our school at a competition. There was some brilliant football on the day and both our teams did us extremely proud. We finished 15th overall but with it being very close between all the schools this is a fantastic achievement. Well done to all the children who took part, you did us proud!
Each term we run two virtual challenges within school. Every child is given the opportunity to take part in these challenges and then the top 5 scores from KS1 and KS2 make it onto our leader board in the hall.
We would really love if you joined in at home! If you then get someone to let one of the PE Team know we can add your score to our parents / carers section of the leader board and you could win a prize for your child!
Our term 1 virtual challenges are;
- How many star-jumps can you do in 30s
- How many alternative one hand catches can you do before you drop a beanbag
SWF Football Team Group Announced!
This year the PE Team are pleased to announce that we will be continuing our SWF football team. The team is made up of the best 20 players across the federation in years 5 and 6. Trails were held at both schools so that everybody had a fair chance of making the team and then the PE team picked the team based on what they saw. The team can change through-out the year due to behaviour, commitment etc. Naturally we understand there will be some disappointed children for not making the team however there are still plenty of opportunities to represent the school this year and congratulations to the children who made it. Out of these 20 children only 10 are allowed to be named in the match squad so the battle for places starts now!
This year the league is being run differently to previous years. There are now four groups made up of 5 (and one group of 4) teams. Each term every school will play a different school from their group. Once all the games have been played the top two team from every group will progress to a knock-out phase while the others will go into another small league to play friendlies against each other. This means that every school who is entered will play a minimum of four competitive games against other schools.
This year our SWF team was draw in Group B, which see us face, St Georges, St Peters, Lansdowne and Milton Court. We are looking forward to the competition getting underway and can’t wait to see how we get on! Good luck to all the schools taking part, and keep your eyes our for our first fixture next term!
