Sheerness West Federation

Every year at SWF we offer our children a number of opportunities to represent our schools in a range of competitions. We take part in a number of Inter-School, School Games Competitions across our calendar year, as well as our SWF varsity competitions.

Our Inter-School competitions are where a number of schools from Sheppey and Sittingbourne compete against each other for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. If these competitions are also part of the School Games Events the winning school will get to go to the county finals to represent our area.

Our SWF varsity fixtures are events which are run with-in our schools. We are lucky enough to have two schools (West Minster and Rose Street) making up the Sheerness West Federation. Each term teams are selected to represent each school and take part in a competition against each other. The winning school then gets to keep the varsity shield for the following term until the next event. We have run this for the last two years. The first year West Minster ran out the overall winners while last year Rose Street came out on top. We are looking forward to seeing who wins this year!

Virtual Challenges

Each term we run two virtual challenges within school. Every child is given the opportunity to take part in these challenges and then the top 5 scores from KS1 and KS2 make it onto our leader board in the hall.

We would really love if you joined in at home! If you then get someone to let one of the PE Team know we can add your score to our parents / carers section of the leader board and you could win a prize for your child!

Our term 3 virtual challenges are;

  • How many skipps can you do before you catch the rope? 
  • How long can you keep a hula-hoop spinning ?

SWF Football Fixture vs Lansdowne  

On Thursday 21st November 10 players from the SWF Football squad travelled to Lansdowne Primary School in Sittingbourne to take part in our first football fixture of the SSSSP Football League competition. The team put on a fantastic football display which saw us take a very early lead. SWF stuck to their pass and move style of football and came in at half time 1-6 up! Lansdowne battled away in the second half and made it a much closely fought half however SWF managed to add to the score with two very well taken goals to win the match 1-8, and get our run in the competition off to the perfect start! Firstly we would like to say a huge well done to all the team members who took part in the game not only for the win but also for being brilliant ambassadors for our school while visiting Lansdowne. Secondly we would like to say a huge thank you to all the children and staff at Lansdowne who gave us a fantastic welcome and looked after us during our time at their school and where the perfect hosts. We would like to wish them the best of luck in their future games.
