To work, to pray, to play in the Light of the Lord
Holy Family School Sports Clubs
At Holy Family we run a wide variety of sports clubs both during lunch time and after school. Each week we attend 2 competitive internal school sports events, a total of 10 extra curricular sports clubs. Throughout the Year the attendance of KS2 is 90% and KS1 70%.
Clubs on offer will vary depending on the time of year and they will be run alongside competitions run by local high schools as well as with other primary schools in our area.
At the beginning of each term, letters for each club are usually sent out and parents have a set period of time to apply for places, we endeavour to give every child a place in one club or more than one if it is possible, however on the rare occasion you child is unsuccessful, they will be placed on a reserve list and guaranteed a place in the next block of clubs.
Please see below the club timetable for this half term.

This club is run during the months of September to March (Autumn to Winter months!) and we partake in five cross country races against other schools in Leeds as well as, hopefully, qualify for the West Yorkshire school Games races in March / April.
