Good luck to our school A-team netball players who will compete in the Tees Valley Finals on Thursday 14th April. We are very proud of you all and hope that you continue to shine in all of your matches.

Good luck also to Daisy from Y6 who will swim as a member of the Middlesbrough team at the Tees Valley Swimming Gala on Thursday 28th April. It is fantastic that you are representing St. Clare’s at this event.


Congratulations to the children in Y5 who have been learning all about how to stay safe whilst riding their bikes in our local area.

Well done to Kayleigh, Lucy and Leo from Y6 and Ajay, Grace, Alex and Erin from Y5 who competed for Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley Cross Country finals which were held at Stewarts Park. They all performed to a very high standard, with top 20 finishes from Kayleigh (15th Y6 girls), Lucy (20th Y6 girls) and Ajay (19th Y5 boys). We are extremely proud of you all and of the fantastic sporting attitudes which you all displayed.

Our school netball squad has been very busy over the last couple of weeks. Our A-team competed in the Middlesbrough Primary Schools’ Championship which took place at Middlesbrough College last week. They competed against a number of other primary schools from across Middlesbrough and I am delighted to tell you that they WON the whole event! The team will now go on to represent Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley Finals when we return to school after Easter.

Our B-team have also been busy playing a number of matches, this time in the Trinity Partnership Competition. As with the A-team, the B-team played extremely well and were narrowly beaten in the final of this competition, securing themselves a very well-deserved silver medal. Both teams have shown excellent sporting attitudes as well as great skills in their matches and we are all very proud of their efforts and achievements. Well done to all our netballing superstars: Lucy, Kayleigh, Hope, Gio, Joe, Blake, Elliot, Abigail, Lucy-Kate, Leonie, Lucas, Kane and Leo and good luck A-team in your next competition.

They showed great skill and determination in a range of athletics events and were excellent representatives for St. Clare’s.

Our Key Stage 2 cross country team had more success last week. In the Year 6 races, Kayleigh and Lucy came 2nd and 3rd respectively and along with Leo have qualified to represent Middlesbrough at the Tees Valley finals. In Year 5, Ajay was the overall boys’ champion, whilst in the girls’ race, Grace finished 3rd and Alex and Erin also fin-ished in the top 10 meaning that they too will also represent Middlesbrough. Our Year 5 girls were placed second overall out of all of the 30 schools which competed and our Y3/4 runners also performed very well in their races. Well done to all those who took part and good luck to our runners in their next races.



Children from Years 1 -6 thoroughly enjoyed a judo taster session which was delivered in school by Destination Judo.
