Sport at Mangotsfield
We are passionate about sport and competition here at Mangotsfield.
Competitive sport develops a range of life skills which can support young people as they progress through school and into adult life. Everything from the benefits of teamwork, resilience and leadership skills, to the respect and humility in handling success or disappointment.
Our staff have worked hard this year to ensure that more children take part in more sporting events and to increase the competitiveness of our teams at these events whilst maintaining our high standards of sportsmanship. Without exception, all of the children who have taken part are a real credit to the school and we are so proud of their achievements. There is a real feeling of pride around the school with children now requesting to take part in sporting ventures or asking me when the next opportunities will be and that is wonderful! Without fail they are giving it their all, wanting to improve and are supporting one another in their teams. We are very proud to take them to these events and look forward to the rest of the sporting season!
In addition to the team of staff and children going to these events, can I also take the opportunity to thank parents and carers for transporting the children (and cheering us on) all over the place at various times of the day and even at weekends. Without you our sporting ventures would simply not be possible.
