We are collecting the Sainsbury’s School Vouchers at both sites. Please help us to collect as many as possible by getting vouchers with your shopping and getting vouchers from friends and family who may not normally take them.
Last year we managed to collect enough to add valuable equipment for the children to use and this year we aim to collect as many as possible to add as much equipment as we can to aid the children’s sporting experience at Julian’s
The year 5/6 Netball team competed in the Moving Matters 2 week Netball competition hosted by Vauxhall Primary School. Both weeks the team played really well and managed to put in some very good performances in victory and defeat. There was a lot of talent on show from all of the competing schools and the Julian’s boys and girls did not look out of place.
This competition was an opportunity to gain competitive experience before the borough wide School Games competition on February 24th when we will be up against up to 30 other schools.
7 children from KS2 took part in the Moving Matters Table Tennis compettion hosted bt the London Nautical School. Every child performed very well in an amzing event and the team ended up finishing a very repectable 4th overall. Well done everyone involved.
Julian's has received the Bronze Mark from the School Games. This is for the competitve sport and participation through after school clubs and PE throughout the year. This is another mark of the development of PE and Sport at Julian's and the increased oppertunities for the children.
Due to a generous donatoin from the PTFA the children from Julian's who get selected for the sports teams will be able to look the part after getting 2 new sports strips for the school. The strips have already been well received by kids and staff a like and will no doubt give the children the extra believe when it comes to the sports competitoins.
2 teams made up of year 5 and 6 children from Julians competed in the Moving Matters Tag Rugby competition on Wednesday 16th November. Both teams showed great skill and attitude throughout the competition and managed to have a lot of positive results on the day.
The game of the day was when the Red Julian's team came up against Telferscot in the final. Julian's lost the game 1.0 but the skill and organisation both teams showed was of the highest quality and was a credit to both schools.

The year 6 boy’s football team competed in the School Games football competition at Ferndale Sports Centre. There were 25 other schools competing and the Julian’s boys did extremely well only losing 1 game in their group. Unfortunately the boys missed out on the quarter finals by 2 points; with the two teams finishing above Julian’s both making the semi-finals demonstrating what a challenging group they had.
Julian’s are very proud of the boys and how they represented the school!
The year 5/6 Girls Football teams participated in a Moving Matters 2 week league against other schools from the local area. After a tough first week for the girls getting used to competitive matches agaionst other very good schools both Julians teams progressed excellantly and produced an amazing effort in the second week managing to win 3 games and draw 2 games!
The skill on show was fantastic and the attitude was always to be admired. The whole of Julians should be proud of the girls performance.
