We are part of the local school sports partnership:
Fixtures & Events
Have a look here at the list of forthcoming fixtures and events:
In July 2018 we gained the Gold Level for the School Games Mark and maintained it in 2019.
Schools are allocated a sum of money, called Primary PE and Sport Funding, to support all children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Burnley Football Club have been working on a female bee mascot to join Bertie. They want to gather ideas from YOU and have provided the attached workbook. If you’d like to get involved please complete the workbook with your ideas and send back into school to Mrs Martin by Thursday 23rd September.
If we win as a school we will receive a visit to school from both mascots in the new year with some match tickets! 🎉

Year 4 Fishing Lessons @ Cornfield Fishery
Four children from Year 4 had a fantastic time on Friday morning at Cornfield Fishery. Lots of fish caught in the lovely Spring weather.
Sport Relief Week
We have had a fantastic time taking part in Sport Relief week. Throughout the week we have taken part in our own individual challenge – ‘Barnoldswick to Budapest’ which is 1300 miles. Each child and teacher in the school has ran a mile a day to accumulate the miles. We have had a range of different sports coaches in this week to give the children a wider range of sporting knowledge and opportunity. These sports have included Karate, Dance, Dodgeball and Cricket. Finally, the children were also lucky enough to have a chance to ride a smoothie bike thanks to the Pendle Up and Active Team who kindly lent us this on Friday to give the children the opportunity to make their own fruit smoothie by pedaling the push bike. The harder the children pedaled, the smoother it made their fruit smoothie for them to then drink! As a school, Gisburn Road raised over £195 which is a fantastic amount to help less fortunate children around the world. A big thank you to everyone who has donated and contributed to making Sport Relief a really enjoyable week for the children.
Year 5/6 Football Competition @ Fisher More High School

Well done to our Year 5/6 Development Team Footballers who reached the Semi Finals of the Pendle School’s competition on Wednesday evening at Fisher More High School. The team won both their group games – showing some great team work in the process before they were unfortunately knocked out at the semi final stage against eventual runners up – Sacred Heart. The team showed great teamwork and had a fantastic time throughout the evening. Well done!
Team: Hannah, Michael, Arron, Matthew, George, Oliver, Dainton and Kaizer.
Year 3 Fishing Lessons @ Cornfield Fishery
Four children from Year 3 had a fantastic time trying out Fishing last Friday at Cornfield Fishery in Burnley. Despite the torrential rain, the children worked really hard to search for fish. They all found it really fun and exciting!
Year 3/4 Dodgeball Festival @ West Craven Leisure Centre
Well done to our Year 3/4 Dodgeball team who really enjoyed their festival on Thursday afternoon at West Craven Leisure Centre. The children competed against the other West Craven cluster of schools and had lots of fun throughout their games. The team all did some fantastic catching and throwing but also some great dodging, ducking and diving to avoid being hit with the ball from the other team. The children all had a great time and represented the school in a fantastic manner.
Team: James, Bradley, Noah, Toby, Isabella, Ellie, Daisy and Rosie.
Sports for Schools with ex Team GB Paralympic Athlete – Michael Churm
We had a very special visit from a former Team GB Paralympic Athlete on Wednesday afternoon from a company called Sports for Schools. The aim of Sports for Schools is to bring a former Athlete to your school to undergo some fitness circuits with each class before doing a whole school assembly where the Athlete talks about their life, their challenges and how they overcome their challenges in life to achieve their goals. This is a fantastic way of inspiring the children to show that if they never give up, then they can achieve their goals whether that is in Sport or not. Michael Churm is an ex short distance sprinter who competed at 3 Paralympic Games throughout his career – winning a bronze medal at Beijing in 2008 and also won a silver medal at the World Championships in 2009 too. Michael was fantastic throughout the afternoon and inspired all the children with his speech during his assembly. It is now over to the children to get their sponsorship forms back to raise some money for new PE equipment to use beyond 2020!
