Sports at Bardfield

Intra and Inter Competitions

Here at Bardfield Academy, we try to get as many children as possible involved in competitions. There are two types of competition, inter and intra.

Inter competition involves competing against other school. Annually, we join the Lee Chapel football and netball rally, which is run for the all the schools in Basildon. The netball tournament is also entry to the County netball competition.  We also organise friendly matches against other school in after school clubs. Every year we enter the District Sports competitions where we compete against all the other schools in Basildon in athletic events. We also take part in a variety of competitions arranged by our local School Games Officer. These vary from cross country to tennis to swimming.

Intra competition involves competing against each other in school. This year, we aim to not only do this in class within our PE lessons but through termly whole school events where each classes will compete against other classes in their key stage. Below is a timetable of what is happening this year. For Health and Safety reasons, parents will only be able to attend sports day but all these events will be reported in our fortnightly newsletter and on the sports section of the school website; so please keep an eye out for any news. Let’s hope we have another successful and competitive year!
