We are extremely proud to announce that we won the Somerset Activity and Sports Awards 2018 Primary PE and Sports Premium Award.
This award is in recognition of our innovative approach to provide outcomes for pupils using the Primary PE and Sport Premium grant. We have achieved this by: pupil engagement in physical activity, health and wellbeing; whole school improvement; up-skilling staff; broader sporting experience and increased participation in competitive sport.

As a fundraising event, to enable our students to take part in ‘Voice in a Million’ at the SSE Wembley Arena, Miss Morton hosted our first Open Mic Night. Any child, parent or teacher could take part by performing a pre-rehearsed song or piece of music. Miss Hart said “I was completely blown away with the talent shown by this super bunch from Reception all the way up to Year 6”.
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.
Our sporting achievements this year include: being shortlisted for the Somerset Activity and Sports Award 2018; Somerset County Finalist winners of Hockey; providing Bikeability to Year 6; and introducing a Wellbeing Week for the whole school’
Most of our KS2 children competed in local inter-school competitions this year, we are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of school sport, including those young volunteers, leaders and officials who made our competitions possible.
As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in the areas of participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.
A special thanks to everyone in the Tatworth Team, children, adults and parents who make sport possible.
We look forward to applying once again in 2019!
Year 5 had great fun during their residential trip to Pixies Holt, where they undertook team building and outside activities.
The weather resulted in the event being shorter but the children ran as fast as they could!

As usual the weather necessitated a change of plan for our annual Sports Day. However, this year it has been so hot that we have had to split the event into two morning sessions (KS2 this week and KS1 next week), plus bring the start time forward.
One of our students said: “Our annual Sports Day is really good fun it included a relay and slow bike race (only for Year 6). Because Year 6 did Bikeability training, we did a slow bike race and as the name suggests you have to go as slow as possible.”
After a jam packed hour and a half, the results were:
Well done everybody!
