PE and Sport

We are committed to providing every child with a wide variety of PE and sporting opportunities as these play such an important role in the education of every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

Through PE and sporting activities, our children learn to develop discipline, resilience, communication, teamwork, and ambition, improving concentration, attitude, and academic achievement. 

Our aims and vision

We want Fairholme pupils to participate in a wide range of physical, and creative activities and be inspired to participate and develop a lifelong love of physical activity, sport and exercise.

 So our aims and objectives are to:

  • Increase universal participation in a range of physical activities
  • Provide more opportunities for children to participate in sport and try new sports
  • Encourage and enable children to take part in a variety of sports competitions
  • Create greater links with outside sports clubs & organisations
  • Guide and give pathways for gifted and talented children

School Games Mark

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the School Games Bronze Mark Award for the 2022/23 academic year.

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 in 2022/2023 included:

  • Y5/6 Sportshall athletics: Hounslow West Cluster, Borough, West London finals and London Youth Games Finals
  • Y5/6 Football team attending Best Football festival
  • Y5/6 Bee Netball Hounslow West Cluster and London Youth Games Finals 
  • Y5/6 Quadkids Hounslow West Cluster and Borough finals
  • Y3/4 Best Football Competition
  • Y1/2 Quadkids
  • Y3/4 Quadkids 
  • Y6 Transition festival

Within school, we also participated in the Mini London Marathon and had Middlesex Cricket in to coach two-year groups, for the second 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 well as staff and parents who gave up their time to support attendance at events.

As part of our application, we were asked to fulfil criteria in participation, competition, workforce and clubs, and we are pleased that the hard work of everyone at our school has been rewarded this year.


Cricket Coaching

Our children have benefitted from fantastic cricket coaching provided by Middlesex County Cricket Club and their Chance To Shine programme. Our school has been fortunate to be part of a case study demonstrating the positive impact of sports coaching on children's behaviour, emotional well-being and achievement in other curriculum areas. Read about our involvement with Middlesex Cricket on their website here.

Sports Kit Sponsorship

We're fortunate to have several local companies sponsoring our new kits for our sports teams, including Lodge Brothers and The Rotary Club Of Feltham. A great big thank you from Fairholme for your donations which have enabled us to purchase these new team kits!



At Fairholme School we believe PE and sport play an important role in the education of every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

Through PE and sporting activities, our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work, and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and academic achievement.

Sports Competitions

We take part in a range of sports competitions throughout the year.  Some of these are "friendlies" against other local schools, and some are organised across the Sport Impact on behalf of London Borough of Hounslow.  Our teams are often successful and we have represented Hounslow in various London Youth Games Finals.  You can find out more about our teams and competitions below.

Girls Football Festival - 10th October 2023

As you may know, 10 of our girls from Year 5 and 6 went to an only girls football tournament. At the tournament we took part in activities and games including 3 vs 3, 'netball football' and mini matches. Coach Iuri told us it wasn't about winning, and it was about having fun'. Coach Lauren gave us a confidence boost when she told us, 'Try your best that's all that matters'. We can't wait to play again soon.

Hounslow Cross Country Festival - 9th October 2023

On a chilly Thursday morning, twelve of our Key Stage 2 students headed to Osterley Park for the annual Hounslow Cross Country Festival. Despite the cold weather, the children were enthusiastic and eager to run through the damp, muddy conditions. 

The races were divided into four categories: Y3/4 girls, Y3/4 boys, Y5/6 girls, and Y5/6 boys, with Y3/4 participating in a shorter race than Y5/6. Our young athletes showed excellent resilience and determination, even through their nerves. 

Throughout the races, the children cheered on one another as their peers pounded through the damp grass. All of them completed fantastic sprint finishes, often overtaking a number of other participants. The camaraderie and encouragement our students gave one another and the way they rallied around each other provided a sense of unity and support as a team. 

All the children returned to school with smiles on their faces, proud of their achievements. Their teacher was incredibly proud of their unwavering spirit and sportsmanship demonstrated throughout the event.

Swimming at Fairholme Primary School

As part of the National Curriculum, Key Stage Two children are expected to have an opportunity to learn to swim. At Fairholme Primary School we build this into the Year 3 PE curriculum. Children will visit Hanworth Air Park Leisure Centre once a week for a half an hour swimming lesson for the duration of one term during the academic year.

A requirement of receiving Sports Premium funding from the government is that we report how well our Year 6 children can swim.  To do this we ask the children the following questions: -

Q1 Can you swim confidently for a distance of 25 metres (one length of the pool)?

Q2 Can you use a range of strokes (breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly stoke etc.)?

Q3 Could you safely rescue yourself if you got into difficulty in a pool, the sea or a river?

Our current Year 6 children answered as follows: -

Q1 – 65% yes

Q2 – 69% yes

Q3 – 61% yes
