All children participate in a daily 'Wake and Shake' routine which takes place on the Junior playground in the morning for KS2 and on the Infant playground just before the end of lunchtime for KS2. The routines vary in ability and include dance and exercise movements. This enables all children to participate whilst having fun with staff and their peers!!


Research also suggests that a daily 'wake and shake' routine can impact on the following areas:

  • ​Enjoyment of school life and a sense of well-being (staff too!)
  • Improved self-esteem impacting on other curriculum areas: 'success breeds success'
  • Improved co-ordination (gross motor skills then impacting on fine motor skills)
  • Improved rhythm and timing
  • Improved concentration and application to tasks immediately after the brief exercise session
  • Increased stamina
  • Improved behaviour 







Competitive sport is an important aspect of the PE curriculum and we have a number of teams competing at different sports across the school. Many pupils also take part in festivals and sporting events, which encourage children to take part and enjoy a variety of sports.


Find information about all the sporting events both in school and out of school on this page.

Competition Results


Cross Country Relay - Wednesday 19th October

This was our first competition this year and it was fantastic to see the children really eager to do our school proud. They all performed really well and represented our school in the best manner. The children were up against some tough teams who clearly have had a lot of experience. However this did not phase our Juniors and they gave every relay their best shot. So a big well done and thank you to those that attended!! 


Some fantastic pictures of the event will be uploaded shortly!!

Year 3/4 Boys Futsal Competition


Last Wednesday 3rd November the Lower Junior boys took part in a Futsal Competition at St Benedict's. We delighted to announce that out of the five teams that participated we came second. A very big well done to the team. Even though it was extremely cold they didn't let this effect their performance!! This was also their first time working together as a team and they managed to come out on top!! They represented the school very professionally and showed great showmanship to the other teams. We are very proud of them and they were delighted to receive a certificate on Friday during Achievement Assembly. Well done to all!!

Mixed Year 4/5 Futsal Competition

On Tuesday 29th November Miss Johnson, myself and Year 3 and 4 children, attended a futsal competition held at Noel Baker Sports Centre. 


Prior to the event the children had been attending a lunch time futsal club where they practiced the required skills and tactics. This enabled them to gel as a team and become familiar with each other's abilities. 


The event played out as follows; our first match was against St Werburgh's, second game was against Bemrose and the final game was Lakeside. All children gave 100% in each match!


The children were all very excited to represent St George's, and for some it was their first experience of playing a competitive sport against other schools. They all behaved in an appropriate manner and represented the school outstandingly. The children showed great sportsmanship and team spirit. We look forward to the next futsal event! Here are some pictures of the event.

Year 3/4 Physical Activity Festival


On Wednesday 30th November the following children; Kinga, Safa, Jason, Connor, Marcus, Husna, Denis, Kristyna, Thomas, Stella, Natasha and Titus attended a fun and energetic physical  activity festival with Mr Hanif and myself. The children were given the opportunity to try a variety of sports such as; Karate, Gymnastics, Yoga and many more. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and gave 100%, it was lovely to see them having such a great time and getting involved in different sports. Here are some photos and videos of the event. 

Year 5/6 Catholic Cluster Badminton Competition

On Friday 2nd December Year 5/6 took part in a badminton competition, hosted at St Benedict's against our fellow catholic cluster schools. The event was a huge success and the children represented our school fantastically. They displayed a great attitude towards sportsmanship and fairness which was lovely to see. They all fully engaged with the competition and gave it their best, which resulted in us placing second out of the four schools that participated.  


This was a fantastic achievement as we have only had four badminton sessions,after school, this half term. As a team the children work well together and individually they all offer a great deal of support to each other. This all contributed to our success on Friday night, at St Benedict's, so well done to all of you!! You have all made our school and myself very proud of you! Finally, a massive thank you to the parents for arranging transport to and from the event and not only that but giving up your own time to support us during the event, we really appreciate this!! Here are a couple of pictures of the team!


St George's Year 5/6 Badminton Team



The year 5/6 girls attended an activity festival where they were able to carry out a variety of fun sporting activities such as cycling (Cycle Derby), Tennis (Derby Tennis Centre) and Football (Derby County). There was also an OAA station and a Boxercise class. The girls thoroughly enjoyed carrying out the activities without the added pressure of competing. They were able to relax and apply themselves without feeling pressured to do well, which in turn, enabled them to identify whether or not they could possibly take up one of these sports long term. It was great to see them getting involved and working as a team. They represented the school superbly. Well done girls!!

Spring Term 1


Winter Seasonal Walk

Upon our return from the Christmas holidays we were delighted to offer 14 of Key Stage 2 children a morning out around Alvaston Castle. The children were provided with a map and pictures of shields which are located around the castle, they had to use the map to located each shield and crack the code. I am delighted to say that we were the first school to complete the task and carried it on in an impressive time of 40 minutes and 37 seconds. The children had a fantastic time and worked incredible well as a team, sharing ideas and making sure everyone was involved. Well done to all!!

Key Stage 1 Physical Activity Festival

The infants have been desperate to attend one of our physical activity events so I was delighted to inform them that we had been invited to David LLoyds Sports Centre to enjoy a morning of fun sporting activities. The children were able to have a go at a varitey of activites that they may never have had the opportunity to be involved in previously. The children loved taking part in the yoga and karate, they gave every activity 110%. They all behaved extremely well and truly showed all the other attending schools and staff involved just how willing we really are as a school to do our best and get involved, even if we are a little unsure. Well done to all children invovled it was such a pleaure to take you.

Spring 2

Cheerleading Festival

St George's have had the opportunity, through the School Sports Partnership, to take our cheerleaders, who attended our after school club, to a cheerleading festival where they were able to showcase all that they have learnt. Initially, we began by doing a warm up which was carried out by one of the SSP team members. This was great fun and really got the children to loosen up and enjoy themselves. Afterwards, they were shown some of the traditional moves used by cheerleading squads and they were informed that they were going to create their own routine and then show it to the rest of the attending schools, they were all extremely excited about this.The girls were given pompoms and an hour to create their own routine. I have to say the girls did extremely well, not only did they create their own routine but they were also the only group who carried out their routine to their own chant, which was extremely brave. Well done girls!!

Celebration of Dance

Since September the children have been working on a variety of dance routines during our daily 'wake and shake', in preparation for this event. The children have absolutely loved our routines, especially Bruno Mars so it made sense to choose this routine, along with our Jessie J routine for the dance festival. The Infants and Juniors have all worked hard to learn these routines so I was more then happy, and confident in their ability, to mix up the grouping and allow them all to take part in the show as one whole group, which might I add we were the only school to do this at the evening show. This worked really well and the dance was amazing! We were the last group to perform out of 15 other schools and it has been said by many that we brought the house down!!! I am so proud of all the children, they were amazing!!


A huge thank you to all the parents who supported us, we really appreciated this and I know it made the children even  more determined to show you exactly what we can do, I know that you would all agree that they certainly did do just that! Video to follow soon!!

9/3/17 Yrs 5/6 Girls Futsal Competition

I selected a team of 7 girls to represent  St George's for the Girls Futsal competition held at St Benedict's School. Some of the girls had some experience of competing in competitions previously but the majority of them had never had a competitive match, so this was a very good experience for them. We played against 3 other teams; St Alban's, St John Fisher, St Mary's and St Joseph's. All the girls worked very hard and showed good sportsmanship and tried their very best. Unfortunately we didn't come first, but with a bit more practice we have the ability to win! All the girls are very proud of what they have achieved and enjoyed the whole experience.Thank you to all the parents who came to support their children and the school.

Mr Mitchell
