Our pupils recently showcased the power of sports, enthusiasm, and community spirit in a unique sponsored football event that not only ignited their passion for the game, but also allowed them to raise an impressive £1,904.25!

The event was organised and ran on the day by ProStrikes, who provide free football fundraising events for primary schools, with the aim of cooperating physical activity and fundraising, certainly left a lasting impact on the academy community.

Our pupils injected excitement into the campaign in a departure from traditional fundraising methods. The challenge involved pupils attempting to kick a football into a giant inflatable goal, with an added twist – their kicking speed was recorded on a speed camera. Ms Greenman-Sparrow, Year 5 Teacher, and PE Lead, expressed: “The children were really enthusiastic about the event and loved the activity itself.”

The pupils’ dedication resulted in a massive fundraising total of £1,904.25, reflecting not only the generosity of the sponsors, but also the collective commitment to enhancing the pupils’ campaigning experiences.

The funds raised will strategically be invested in acquiring additional sports resources, ensuring that our academy continues to provide a dynamic and engaging physical education curriculum. Furthermore, the money will facilitate the creation of future activities during the upcoming sports week.

Mrs Greenman-Sparrow added: “beyond the fundraising aspect, this event has instilled a sense of community and achievement in our pupils, showcasing the power of combining passion and purpose.”

The pupils received an array of prizes from ProStrikes, including sports bags, bottles, medals and even footballs, serving as a tangible token of appreciation for their dedication and efforts to fundraise.

ProStrike's sponsored football event will continue to reverberate through our corridors, playgrounds during lunch and breaktime, and in PE lessons. Kicking for a cause has proven to be a winning strategy for this school, leaving a lasting impact on its pupils and the community at large.
