PE AND SPORT AT COOKS SPINNEY
Children at Cooks Spinney are given lots of opportunities to participate in sports during and after school. Some of the sports activities that have taken place over the last year include; netball, rounders, cricket, tag rugby, football, athletics, dodgeball, swimming, gymnastics, dance, hockey, table tennis, badminton, cross country, basketball and taekwondo.
By offering lots of different sports clubs and building up our PE and sport resources, we are leaving a legacy for the school community for the future. We have already established a reputation as a ‘sporty school’ over a relatively short time. We will continue to ensure that all future children have the same opportunities as our current children receive now.
In July 2017 we were awarded the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award which reflects the pride we take in offering children as many opportunities as possible to get involved in sport. We are providing many more opportunities for our children to participate in competitions, through BMAT events and festivals and also by regularly entering teams into to Harlow District Competitions.

Cheerleading 6th March 2020 @ Harlow Leisurezone
Cheer! 2, 4, 6, 8 who do we appreciate... Cook Spinney 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏 Once again, the Primary school children, staff and spectators amazed us with another great event. Despite some late changes to the venue, the third annual Cheerleading event was a resounding success. The sports centre at Harlow Leisure Zone was packed (literally standing room only!) with parents eager to watch the teams perform. The teams were provided with some warm-up time, where they only had a short time to practise and refine their routines. And the teams certainly didn’t disappoint…. Schools performed in different categories and all of the excellent routines were judged by Mikey Smith, Maddy and Jade from Oblivion Allstars. The kids were awesome; they tumbled, flipped and stunted –with series of motions, formations and transitions which reflected the hard work which had gone on behind the scenes. The result was an afternoon of pure delight for everyone involved; the audience were so supportive and the kids thrived on their energy. Eventually the scores were counted and were as follows: Upper KS2 (large group +13 participants) Church Langley - winners Henry Moore Hatfield Heath Cooks Spinney Upper KS2 (small group less than 13 participants) Tanys Dell - winners Henry Moore Churchgate Pemberley Lower KS2 (small group less than 12 participants) Tanys Dell -winners KS1 (small group less than 12 participants) Tanys Dell - winners
