A big hello from the Sports & PE team here at Safa Community School. The Sports & PE department is a huge department with 18 full time staff who play a very important role here at SCS providing an enriching PE Curriculum as well as offering an extensive morning & afternoon Sports programme. The team is led by Mr Journeaux (Sports) & Miss Davis (PE).
Intra House Sporting Events
Throughout the year we run a number of Intra-House sporting events. These include Sports Days, Swimming Galas, X-Country. Read more about our School House System.
Morning Sports Clubs are a big part of the school day here at SCS. Every day before school starts we have around 150 children on site taking part in activities from 6.40-7.25am. These are a mixture of squad training and ‘open to all’ clubs.
Typical sports clubs that run throughout the year in the morning include:
These clubs run from our Year 3s all the way up to our Year 13s.
Our afternoon schedule is split into 2 sessions:
Primary students: 2.40-3.20pm
Secondary students: 3.30-4.15pm.
This is also when fixtures are played as part of the DASSA Sports League Competition that we belong to. Sports & Activities that take place here across the year include:
