Sport Day – Thursday 13th July 2023
KAA Sports Day for students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 12 will take place on Thursday 13th July 2023 at Linford Christie Athletics Stadium, Linford Christie Rd, London, W12 0DF from 8.30am-2pm.
As in previous years, we are asking for the support of parents in either allowing students to make their own way to and from the stadium or in dropping them off. We would like to reassure parents that KAA staff will be stewards on local streets ensuring students are safe on their journey to and from the stadium. Students must arrive at the stadium by 8:30am for registration. It is anticipated that the event will finish at 2:00pm. Students will be dismissed from the stadium to make their own way home. If the event overruns a little, dismissal will be delayed. The timings of the end of the day will ensure the students do not mix with other local schools.
Students will represent their House and must participate in a minimum of one event on the day, with the winning house receiving the Sports Day Shield and 20,000 house points.
Attendance to Sports Day is just as important as any other day. Students are required to wear correct school PE kit both to and from the stadium. If any student fails to wear the appropriate PE kit, they will be given some spare kit that they will be expected to change. Non-participants must also wear full school PE kit and provide a note explaining why they are not able to participate in their planner.
All students who are entitled to free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch, which they can collect at the stadium. All other students must bring a packed lunch and a reusable water bottle. It is hard to predict the weather at this stage, we therefore advise that students come with a raincoat and sun cream. Pupils on prescribed medication are responsible for bringing it with them, together with inhalers/epipens, if appropriate.
If the weather is either wet or uncertain in the morning and we have to cancel Sports Day on the day, we will text parents by 8.15am and the school day will start at 9.00am at KAA. Pupils would in this instance need to bring in their normal books and equipment for lessons on a Thursday. If the events have to be abandoned at the stadium part of the way through then we shall allow pupils to make their own way home.
If you have any further questions related to sports day please do not hesitate to contact me our Lead Teacher of PE, Miss Kennedy, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
