St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

In a virtual awards ceremony this week, we were awarded Primary School of the Year by national cricket charity Chance to Shine! We are all delighted and proud of this achievement which was presented based on our cricket engagement throughout 2020. This included our cricket after school club and specific All Stars Club; our social media work encouraging children to be active and showcasing what we’ve been up to; our use of Chance to Shine resources including wellbeing activities and National Cricket Week engagement; and finally, our general encouragement of children to be active in PE lessons, at play times and at home too.

Chance to Shine visited us to see exactly what we do and you can see the fantastic photos below. A big thank you and well done to all staff and children, to Staffordshire cricket for their fantastic coaching and support, and to Chance to Shine themselves. This is brilliant news and we will be celebrating at school over the coming weeks!
