KS2 Borough Sports - 12th June


Wednesday morning saw 60 of our sporting stars take to the athletics field for the throwing, jumping and running competition that is ks2 Borough Sports.

We were nervous as we were promoted to Group Two last year so we knew the completion would be fierce. “I was happy to take part in the track. I was nervous at the start but the buzz when you are doing it is amazing.” Bea Year 4.

There were stand out performances and as the morning progressed the number of medals won kept growing. A special shout out to Charlie in Year Six who smashed his own personal best and set a Borough Record in the 600m with a time of 1.43.

 The morning finished with the presentation of the trophies: LNSPS came second in the field events, first in the track events and as we finished first overall we have been promoted into Group One for next year. This is an amazing achievement.



KS1 Borough Sports - 5th July


Our 20 strong team of children from across Year 2, had a fantastic sporting day at the KS1 Borough Sports event on Friday 4th July. 


They competed in a range of events, including the egg and spoon race, skipping race, space hopper race and the electrifying shuttle relay.

Well done to everyone involved! 



KS2 Borough Swimming Gala

Year 3 and 4 Girls' Football - Friday 3rd May


A massive congratulations to our Year Three and Four Girls who became champions for the Southend Borough on Friday! Despite the constant rain and feeling a little soggy! Our girls not only won the tournament but also won twelve of their thirteen matches! They didn't lose a single game and didn't concede a single goal! 


It was a really impressive performance and the girls should be incredibly proud but what pleased Mr Bond and Mr Kelly most were the ASPIRE values our girls represented. They were so respectful towards each and every opposition they faced and knew how to be gracious winners too. They were a real credit to our school! 


Thank you to Mr Kelly for all his training and guidance leading us to today!

Year 6 Hockey - Wednesday 31st January


On Wednesday, the Year 6 hockey team went to the annual Warners Bridge hockey tournament for local schools. They played 5 truly nail-biting games in which they only conceded 2 goals. The first two games saw the team lose by the slenderest of margins, but they remained unperturbed and came fighting back to win the next two games with  commanding authority.  A tenacious battling spirit was much in evidence but so was the team’s dignified, sportsmanlike conduct. The hard work in training paid off with the highest placement ever for Leigh North  Street Primary in this competition!


A huge  thanks for the parents of the children who helped with transport and who lent their plentiful and much welcomed support!



Year 3 and 4 Boys' Football - Friday 26th January


What an excellent day of football we had on Friday! Our Year Three and Four Boys' team certainly did the school proud. We started the day winning all three of our group games and not conceding a single goal! This meant we were through to the top eight teams in Southend known as the Super Eights. After lunch, we entered this round of the competition which was even tougher than before. We showed great perseverance against some tough competition. As a result, we finished in 2nd place overall, each achieving a silver medal. We narrowly missed out on 1st but we are all extremely proud of our achievements. Great examples of teamwork and sportsmanship were displayed throughout. A big thank you to Mr Farrer for all his training and support leading up to the day.

They progressed through into the semi-finals and then the final! Team LNSPS kept their cool, regrouped and set out to achieve history. After a tense 10 minute game, Leigh North Street won with a final score of 8-4 and were crowned the Champions of Essex!!

We were victorious against many Southend schools and also drew with the two teams that reached the final. Leigh North Street finished in the top eight schools for Southend but despite some excellent results, sadly, we just narrowly missed out on reaching the top four.

What an excellent afternoon of football we had on Monday! The newly formed Leigh North Street Lions and Leigh North Street Tigers had been attending their weekly training sessions in preperation for this event. The event, that included local schools Darlinghurst and Chalkwell, gave some of our year sixes their final opportunity to represent the school in a sporting event. The Lions and Tigers certainly did the school proud with Lions remaining unbeaten in all matches and the Tigers only losing to our very own Leigh North Street Lions! There were many debut goals and examples of excellent football on show but the most pleasing part of the whole day was seeing the smiles on the faces of our Lions and Tigers when representing our school.

Well done boys for a resilient and determined performance. 




KS1 Football Tournament - 3rd February. 


Our Year 2 footballers played superbly at their tournament this week to secure third place overall and a coveted spot in the Finals competition at the end of March. There was brilliant skill and team work on display from all. Well done! 





31st January Year 5 and 6 Hockey Tournament 


 This week the hard work in Tuesday afternoon hockey training sessions came to fruition as representatives from Year Five and Six hockey squad competed in a Hockey tournament at Warner's Bridge. 

The first match against Hamstel Juniors started off brightly as, for the most part, North Street showed commanding dominance over their opposition as most of the action was contested in the mouth of the opponents’ goal. Shots on target came thick and fast and LNSPS were unlucky not to sink any of their attempts into the back of the net. It ended in a nil-nil draw.

The game against Thorpe Hall was a far trickier proposition as, up until the third quarter of the match, the teams were evenly poised. Then from seemingly nowhere, Thorpe Hall seized the initiative and put an impressive sequence of passes together to drive down from the halfway line to break the deadlock and triumph with a one – nil victory.

The most strongly contested tie that North Street encountered was against West Leigh, which ended in a goalless draw. 

Of LNSPS, there were many notable individual standout performances but what shone out the most was the sense of teamwork and the and courtesy LNSPS squad members showed to each other and extended to their fellow competitors.

A wonderful afternoon of sporting endeavour. 




Year 3 and 4 Girls' Football 


On Friday 27th January, the Year 3 and 4 Girls Football squad took part in a tournament at The Len Forge Centre.  The girls played in twelve games against other schools in our local area and conducted themselves brilliantly scoring a massive seventeen goals along the way!  We won six games, drew two and lost four,  which placed us joint 6th from the thirteen schools competing.  For many of the girls, this was their first experience of taking part in such a large event and they left with their heads held high.  Congratulations to Bournes Green Juniors who were the overall winners.  A special thanks must go to Mr Farrer from Assa for helping to organise team tactics and also to all the parents who came along to support!






January 2023 - LNSPS Cheer Festival


This week, the Year 5 and 6 LNSPS Cheerleading Team attended a Cheerleading Festival held between two local schools. This was one of the first of its kind, given that Cheerleading is still an upcoming sport in the Southend area. The children performed fantastically to their audience, and were commended for their smiles and togetherness throughout their routine. All children walked away from the festival with a certificate, and a free pass for a class at a local cheerleading academy. The Cheer team will be having a well-deserved break, but watch this space as they may be performing again soon!

Year 5 and 6 girls' football Essex Finals


On Tuesday 15th our year five and six girls represented the school against all of the best teams in Essex and the girls certainly did us proud! They started their afternoon off with a 3-0 win that included a brilliant free-kick from Delilah. They then went on to beat another Essex team 1-0 thanks to a last minute goal from Holly. After this game they were narrowly defeated by the eventual winners of the tournament meaning they just missed out on a place in the semi-finals. Interestingly, two teams in the final ended up being the only two teams that managed to beat us in both tournaments. The girls were so close to reaching the top four teams in Essex, which is such an incredible achievement! Their perseverance, teamwork and positive attitude shone through once again. The girls were an absolute credit to the school. A special thank you again to Mr Kelly for all his support and training to help enable the girls to reach this achievement!

On a blustery but sunny day 23 KS1 pupils participated in the KS1 cross country event at Garons. Everyone tried their hardest and ran well, a special mention to Delilah who finished 1st and Esther who came 5th in their race. 





Well done to the year three and four boys that took part in the tournament at Len Forge. We narrowly missed out making it into the top ten despite winning two of our four group stage matches. As the afternoon progressed we played lots more matches and went on to beat many local schools. Throughout the day the boys showed great teamwork, sportsmanship and respect and were a real credit to the school.





Well done to the fourteen boys that represented Leigh North Street in our friendly against Chalkwell. For many of the boys this was their first experience playing football for the school. We had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. Thank you to Chalkwell for hosting and well done to all of the boys for putting in such a good performance!




On a beautiful winter morning 10 KS1 pupils represented the school at Len Forge. They all played so well and encouraged each other all the way, they just missed out on progressing through on goal difference. We went on to play more games and everyone got to play lots more football with great enthusiasm. 





On Friday our year three and four girls’ team represented Leigh North Street in the tournament at Len Forge. They all showed great teamwork, determination and resilience to gradually improve game by game. We suffered a few narrow defeats but went on to eventually beat a few schools in the area including our local rival Chalkwell!




This week saw our first ever team participation in a Boccia Competition at Thorp Hall School. There was some brilliant match play and some nail biting finishes needing a tape measure to decide the final winners. The team really concentrated on putting in a great performance and showed great sportsmanship during all their games. In the afternoon we participated in the New Age Kurling competition and made it through to the Super 10. Again great team work and encouragement saw some close matches. It was a wonderful day of sport and a great demonstration of Leigh North Street children really living up to our ASPIRE values and demonstrating great acceptance of all participants, never giving up and all importantly having fun.




A big well done to all the pupils who have started their laps to Lapland with great enthusiasm and even some of the teachers have joined in. 




Turner Cup


On a chilly Saturday morning 10 boys represented the school at the Turner Cup at Bournes Green. The boys had a tough first match but kept the heads up and kept trying. Unfortunately another school didn’t attend and so the boys only had one more game. They started well but after a lucky goal from the opposition they found themselves on the back foot. The boys had a brilliant second half but unfortunately the ball couldn't find the back of the net.

Well done to all the boys who came out and represented the school. 





On Friday 22nd November the year 5 and 6 boys competed in the Len Forge football competition. Despite some very close games we unfortunately did not make the top ten this year. However we kept our heads held high and played excellently in the afternoon. At one stage we were on a three match winning run without conceding a single goal! Congratulations to Ralph for some stand out defensive performances and well done to Hirsh and Noah for some fantastic finishing. A big thank you to all of the parents that stayed to cheer on the boys despite the cold and thank you as well to Mr Upcraft for attending and helping to coach the team. We look forward to our next tournament in the Turner Cup.





Chalkwell Friendly


On Thursday afternoon many boys in year six (plus Tom in year five) had the opportunity to play a friendly against our local rival: Chalkwell. The boys in year six had not yet had the opportunity to play for the school and so were very excited to put on the North Street kit and represent our school. They all played excellently and despite going 1-0, we went on to win 4-1! Great effort all round boys! Well done!
