Sports Competitions

In the academic year 2017-2018, Copthorne were awarded the Gold Award and named the Champion Infant School in the Amber Valley area. This award recognises schools who have provided the most competitive opportunities for their students to take part in sport against other schools.

We love to take part in Sports Competitions at Copthorne and here you will find information about the events coming up and see who has represented our school in the AVSSP sporting competitions.

The children worked brilliantly together to represent our school. They took part in standing long jump, chest pass, speed bounce and then even had bags of energy left for the different relays they raced in. They made us super proud because they never gave up and we were even awarded a Determination Award.
