Children shine at new inclusive event!


The first ever Primary Adapted Multi Sport PLUS Competition took place earlier this week with children from across the Cambridge & South Cambs School Sports Partnerships taking part.

The morning was full of activity and excitement with children competing in pairs as they rotated around four different sports: Polybat, Boccia, Table Cricket and New Age Kurling. For many of the children this was their first experience of representing their school and taking part in competitive sport so the event was very much about the children having an enjoyable experience and trying out some new sports, with an element of competition added in. The points from each activity were added together to give each pair a total and determine the winners.

Over 30 children aged 8-11 took part in the event which was organised and hosted by Impington Village College as Project Ability lead school for the county.

The competition was opened by Double Paralympian and medallist Fran Williamson who was also on hand to encourage the children and hand out the winner’s medals. Fran said, “It was great to see so many children taking part in this event for the first time, some of them were really quite competitive as well.”

The different sports were led and overseen by sports leaders from Cottenham VC, Granta School, North Cambridge Academy, Netherhall School & Impington VC after they had spent a day last term learning these inclusive sports and looking at how they could be adapted for children with different disabilities such as reduced physical mobility, visual/hearing impairment and wheelchair users.

After all of the activities had taken place the points were added up and the finishing positions announced with not much separating the top pairs; results were split for schools in either the Cambridge or South Cambs School Sport Partnership. Congratulations to Micah & Tiffany from Castle School and Joshua & Harry from Meridian Primary School who won the respective competitions and a huge well done to everyone who took part!

The top 4 pairs from each Partnership will now come together to compete as a team of 8 and represent their respective SSP area at the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Sainsbury’s School Games Summer Festival on 25th June, we wish them all the best of luck!
