This again demonstrates our on-going commitment to getting children actively engaged in physical activity, regardless of the on-going COVID 19 situation.

It was a lovely surprise to receive this certificate in the post from our local SGO Angela Daniel. This was in recognition of 'Successfully achieving the school Games Value: Determination for the Wakefield Virtual Cross Country 2020 event.
A huge well done again goes out to all of our children including our 3rd place Year 6 Boys team and 1st Place Year 5 Girls team!
Virtual Cross Country Event - Outwood Together Oct 2020
After the excitement of the Virtual Cross Country competition in October, we had a wait to see how we had performed compared to the other schools in the Wakefield area.
It is with great pride and excitement that we can share the results of how we performed. In the respective races, all our classes showed great determination and spirit but there were two classes which stood out.
Firstly, this was our Class 6 boys, who came in a very respectable 3rd place out of 19 competing schools and consisting of 128 participants.
Secondly, our Year 5 girls who finished 1st place in a cluster consisting of 19 schools from the local area and 112 participants.
An outstanding achievement!

Year 3 Benchball Competition: June 2019
In June nine of our Year 3 boys and girls competed in the Year 3 Outwood Together Benchball tournament which was held at Middleton Leisure Centre. Despite facing tough competition in every game they played, each child performed to their best as individuals using the skills they had learnt in PE lessons and applied this as a team producing high quality Benchball skills. As just rewards, team Stanley Grove came home with the WINNERS trophy! A fantastic achievement.
Year 5/6 Outwood Together Football Competition Runners-up: May 2019
Totally blown away by how amazing our pupils were today! They worked hard, enjoyed themselves but I’m most proud of how they stood as a team! Worked well, encouraged and supported each other.
We were lucky enough to have 2 games ‘rest’ as we weren’t drawn to play in the first games. This gave us chance to warm up and practise our skills.
Our first game saw us win 4-1 with an extremely energetic performance. Moving on, we breezed though our next games winning every one!
This saw us through to the semi finals which ended in a sudden death penalty shoot out. Holding their nerve our pupils scored their goal and then saved the oppositions goal! Super work!
This lead us to the final. After a great game the score remained 0-0. Another tense penalty shoot out didn’t go our way leaving us as very respectable runners up and bringing home a trophy for our every expanding trophy cabinet at school.
However, we did take the title for highest points scored in the whole competition, that makes us the best out of the 12 teams who entered the tournament!
I’m so proud of the whole team. They worked so well as a unit and represented our school beautifully. A very deserved Runners-up finish for Team Stanley Grove!
West Yorkshire Cross Country Event - Temple Newsam: March 2019
Temple Newsam was the host to the regional Cross Country finals and our two KS2 boys were in action in the Year 4 and 5 races respectively.
Both races were action packed with a range of districts being represented and despite our boys not placing in the top 3 finishes overall, they both finished in the top two out of the Wakefield competitors.
Cross Country success: September 2018
Recently, twelve children from across KS2 took part in the Cross Country event held at Stanley St Peters. After a gruelling afternoon of competition, we are pleased to celebrate the success of all the children who showed great determination, an excellent sporting attitude including fair play and a never give in attitude. In particular, we would like to give further congratulations to those six children who now go on to the next stage of the Cross Country competition in the wider Wakefield area.
Girl's football League Winners 2018
In late September 2018, some of our Year 4, 5 and 6 girls took part in the Girl's football league held at Stanley St Peters. After an exhausting afternoon where the girls showed a great determination to succeed, work together as a team and support each other they finished in 1st place. A massive achievement for our KS2 girls. Well done!
School Games Gold Award
The school is very proud of the School Games Gold Award it currently holds. This reflects the diverse range of sporting opportunities on offer to our children within lessons, in competitions and afterschool provisions.

Our team of six Year 2 children recently took part in a KS1 Dance competition held at Wrenthorpe Primary Academy.

A fantastic achievement celebrated by all.
