Sport Events


This week saw Leigh North Street athletes compete in the Super Sports track and field events at Garons. These were hotly contested competitions with the top performers from across the Borough taking part. It was a fantastic achievement to have even made it to this stage of competition and we were impressed by the awesome performances from all of our team and the dedication that the children showed to prepare themselves for their events too. Leigh North Street were represented in a huge range of events including, relays, sprints, long distance, javelin, long-jump, shot-put and ball throw. We walked away with lots of medals, personal best performances and above all lots of smiles and pride. You are all champions in our eyes!  








KS2 Borough Sport Athletes - Tuesday 14th June


Congratulations to all of our incredible Borough Sport athletes. We had throwers, jumpers, sprinters and long-distance runners battling it out for glory at Garons this week.  We are unbelievably proud of each and every one of your achievements on the day and the brilliant sporting attitudes you displayed. Your behaviour was impeccable and your focus, determination and team spirit second to none!


The results speak for themselves. We achieved second place for our track results and third place overall (combining track and field events)! As well as this, there were so many stand out individual performances with lots of our children being invited back to the Super Sports Track and Field competitions (we'll give you more information about this in due course, if this relates to your child). 


Well done to all of you! You were truly AMAZING! 











 Year 3 and 4 tennis tournament


On Friday 13th May, a team from Year 3 and 4 took part in a tennis tournament at Garons.

Ten schools entered across the borough and there was some tough competition! Our first matches were against Thorpe Hall and despite losing three out of four, the children held their heads high and won their next three matches against Earls Hall. Their winning streak continued with all four matches won against St Mary’s. This meant that LNSPS were the runners up of their group and through to the semi-finals against the winning side from group A. They had tough competition against West Leigh. All four matches were nail-bitingly close but unfortunately, it was not enough to get through to the final. However, we went on to play against Chalkwell school in the 3rd/4th play-off. The children played superbly winning all their final matches and earning their third place medal.





Sports Hall Athletics


Well done to all of the children who represented the school in the Sports Hall Athletics event on Friday 22nd April. There were some brilliant individual and team performances across track and field events. Our Year 4 team came away with a total of 426 points and Year 5/6 totalled 292 points. 



Cross Country Finals


 Congratulations to our Cross Country Champions - Lilia, Loella, Orla and Theo for their fantastic performances in their Cross-Country Event on Wednesday 27th April. Lots of grit and determination were on display to achieve some brilliant finishing places amongst a very strong field.  



Year 6 Girls' Netball


Well done to our Year 6 Netball starlets, who won all of their group stage play-offs at their tournament on Thursday 28th April. They narrowly missed out in their finals match against Alleyn Court but what a day and a super team effort all round! They proudly received self-belief stickers from the tournament organisers for their resilience and determination as a team. 




Year 2 Football Finals


A huge congratulations to our Year 2 Football team who emerged victorious in their Finals competition on Friday 1st April. They were undefeated, displaying not only superb skill but amazing team work. What a brilliant way it was to kick-start the Easter holidays. You are all super stars!  





On Wednesday 23rd March a group of Year 5&6 children took part in an Aquathlon. The weather was bright and the children were all excited to be able to showcase their talents. They started in the pool with a 100m swim. Then,  had a quick change into their running kit and made their way to the running course where they took part in a gruelling 1000m run. They all put in incredible efforts, encouraging each other and showing fantastic sportsmanship. They did themselves and the school proud and came Third overall. Well done! 







Year 6 Girls' Netball Tournament on 21st March


A huge well done to our Year 6 girls’ Netball team who dazzled in their netball tournament this week. They played brilliantly, working so well as a team to make it through to the finals after Easter! Well done!  





On Friday the 25th of February, Year Three performed their dance festival routine to an audience of watching parents. 

Over the past half term, the children, guided by Mrs Lawrence, have been learning the dance to Revolting Children from the musical Matilda.  

It was so lovely to welcome our parents back into school and give the children the opportunity to display their fantastic performance and awesome dance moves! Well done to all of Year 3 for all of your hard work and dedication.





On Friday 11th February, the boys in our year 3 and 4 football team represented our school in their tournament at Len Forge. After weeks of preparation, they were ready and raring to go! The day started brilliantly with us winning our group with two wins and a draw. This meant that we progressed into the ‘Super Eights’ (comprising of the top eight teams in Southend), which we played in the afternoon. They continued playing well, and only narrowly missed out on reaching the top four semi-finals.  Not only did the children play excellently but they were also a credit to the school with their behaviour, attitude, dedication and sportsmanship. Another example of our LNSPS values being demonstrated very well. Well done team!





A huge WELL DONE to our Year 2 Football team who competed in their tournament last Friday. It was a very windy and rainy day, but the team didn't let the weather dampen their spirits as they went on to win all four of their matches. They showed great team work, perseverance and resilience .... and a whole LOT of impressive football skills, including some awesome strikes and fearless tackling! Great job LNSPS!     





On Friday 19th November, our year 5 and 6 boys team represented North Street in their football tournament. The boys played well and despite not reaching the top ten we still achieved some very pleasing results and performances. We were narrowly defeated in a few matches but the boys continued working hard for one another and showed great teamwork, dedication and encouragement towards one another. Great effort boys and great sportsmanship!





On Thursday 18th November Year 3 and 4 took part in a Dodgeball Tournament at Thorpe Hall school. As this was LNSP first Dodgeball Team, they were very excited to represent the school. They played the first round where they won 1 game and lost 2 although it was very close. We then played in the runners up group where we won against the other teams. The children were extremely proud of themselves and showed fantastic sportsmanship towards each other and the other teams. They were a pleasure to take and showed how fantastic LNSP children are.

A big congratulations to all the pupils in Year 3 who participated in this event with so much enthusiasm and skill back in October. Some pupils scored really well in the pentathlon events and those that scored well in a particular event have been been awarded a medal.
Overall Leigh North Street came 2nd in Southend and 6th overall in all of Essex.




Over the last few weeks Year 3 have been practising and completing their multiple events to take part in the Local Virtual Sports Hall Athletics Competition. All their scores have been collated and added together. A special well done to Charlotte and Nevaeh for the highest combined scores in the Pentathlon achieving a Bronze Award. 





12 pupils represented the school at the local schools gymnastic competition, it was split into KS1 and Year 3 & 4 over the day. We entered the main competition for both and all of the pupils tried their hardest with brilliant performances from all.





A little late to announce as the girls persevered for so long but we eventually called it a draw. This years conker champions goes to both girls.




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!
