We are delighted to announce that we, Water Leys Primary School, have achieved the School Games GOLD Mark Award for the 2018/19 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 this year include:
Netball league runners-up
Girls’ football league runners-up
KS2 Boccia winners
Year 3 & 4 Tennis winners
Year 5 & 6 Basketball runners-up
Year 5 Girls’ relay winners
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:
Water Leys office staff
Oadby Granville Tennis Club
We look forward to applying once again in 2020!

Does your child’s behaviour push your buttons?
Do you want to find a better way to discipline your child?
Do you feel like your child doesn’t listen to you?
Do you think you’ve tried everything else and it’s not worked?
Specifically created for families with children aged 2 to 12 by Thomas W. Phelan PhD, this behaviour workshop will guide you through step by step with support from an ADHD Solutions’ Specialist Coach.
As consistency is key to the success of this approach, school staff also use 1-2-3 Magic as part of our whole school behaviour system.
Please enter school via the Burleigh Hall steps
A follow up workshop will be held prior to the end of term

Year 3 + 4 took part in a tag rugby tournament last Wednesday 3rd April at Vipers RFC. Well done to everyone involved, a great effort from all.
Lots of excited pupils ready to watch the theatre production of Skellig after studying the book for most of the half term.
After a rocky start against Glen Hills, going two goals down, Water Leys fought back through goals from Max and Dhruv. The boys were unlucky as Rocco hit the crossbar from long range. Good luck against Parklands Primary!
Children from our school represented Oadby and Wigston in the Leicestershire and Rutland school games SEND championship boccia and kurling.
