Basketball – 1st place
The basketball team attended this competition with confidence after their recent success in the autumn basketball event. With only 6 teams in attendance at UEL’s sports dock, the competition turned into a league event with Scott Wilkie having to play all schools. The scores were as follows:
SW 18 – 0 Brittania Village
SW 3 – 0 Manor
SW 3 – 0 Keir Hardie
SW 6 – 0 Ravenscroft
SW 4 – 4 Vicarage
After a dominant performance and zero losses, the basketball team were announced competition winners once again. Well done!
Mini Olympics – 2nd place
A selection of year 1 and 2 pupils enjoyed a multi-activity afternoon. They participated in golf, hockey, balancing, target throw, speedbounce and relay races. They were tested in four of these events and their scores were recorded and compared to 14 opposing schools. Their overall performance placed them in 2nd place and they received silver medals for their efforts.
Tri-Golf – 2nd place
A group of year 5 children were selected to represent Scott Wilkie at a Tri-Golf event. This team had very little or no experience in golf and did not get the opportunity to practice any of the activities beforehand. Despite this, they returned to school with silver medals! After analysing the results, they narrowly missed out on gold by only 2 points. This goes to show how naturally talented and determined Scott Wilkie pupils are. Well done to all who attended and good luck in the i!

An overall good performance by the entire team positioned us in 2nd place. The team were delighted with their silver medals.
Handball – 1st place
The Scott Wilkie handball team made it a second successive win this year after showcasing some outstanding performances throughout the afternoon. The A team went unbeaten through the group stage, semi-finals and finals to collect the trophy and gold medals once again. However, it was like deja-vu for the B team, they were drawn against Scott Wilkie A team in the semi-finals again and lost out on a place in the finals. Well done to all involved!
Sportshall Athletics Finals – 3rd place
We returned to the Copper Box Arena for the Newham finals, up against some tough competition. The children showed determination and resilience to push themselves up the leader board once again.

Mini Olympics – 2nd place
A year 3 and 4 team represented the school at the mini Olympics held at Forest Gate school. They got off to an impressive start, accumulating the top scores for speed bounce and balancing.

Our year 5 and 6 tag rugby team had tough competition at the Cumberland SSP event. They managed to finish 1st in their group. They then battled against Drew in the semi finals, finishing with a 1-0 win after Kierra scored a solo point, using her speed and agility to run through the entire opposition. Scott Wilkie were drawn against Kaizen in the finals, which proved to be an equal match. After a 0-0 draw, Scott Wilkie went on to lose 1-0 after a golden try in extra time. The Scott Wilkie team were therefore awarded a well respected second place.
Scott Wilkie recently attended the Handball competition held at Newham Leisure Centre. Scott Wilkie A and B teams both qualified through their group stages. Our A and B teams were then drawn against each other in the semi-finals.

School Games Kitemark – Scott Wilkie Achieves Gold!
We are very pleased to announce that Scott Wilkie has been identified for its “outstanding commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport”. We have been awarded a Gold School Games Kitemark, in recognition of the sporting excellence and ongoing commitment that students and staff show towards competitive sport within our school and local community.
The School Games Kitemark, sponsored by Sainsburys, is a government led award scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to asses themselves across bronze (satisfactory), silver (good) and gold (outstanding) levels of the kitemark and receive a nationally recognised award.
Few primary schools within the London Borough of Newham have achieved this gold award, due to the extremely stringent requirements and expectations. The areas we excelled in are listed below:
- We have entered the most sports competitions, in comparison to all schools within the Cumberland School Sports Partnership, peaking at 30 out-of-school competitions in over 14 varying sports throughout the 2013/2014 academic year.
- Over 60% of KS2 were recorded as participating in extracurricular sporting activity each week, exceeding the 50% criteria.
- We boast an extensive afterschool sports club programme, offering 12 sports clubs each week to children from Reception – Year 6.
- Over 33% of KS2 pupils have been engaged in leading, managing and officiating sporting activities in school, exceeding the 20% requirement.
- We provide all pupils with 2 hours of PE and sport within curriculum time each week.
- We provide opportunities for less active young people to participate in physical activity.
- We boast fantastic sport provisions and equipment to ensure learning is at its’ best and the children’s sporting excellence continues.
This award is an honour to receive and is an outstanding achievement for the school. Although our school provides such amazing sporting opportunities for the children, the award could only be achieved by the enthusiasm, dedication and talent of the children across all areas of school sport and PE. Thank you to those who support their children in attending sports clubs and competitions. Please continue to support us as we continue to strive for sporting excellence.
