At Littleport Community Primary School there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to try their hand at a range of sporting activities such as Tag Rugby, Rounders, Netball, Football, Athletics, Hockey, Dance and Gymnastics, to name but a few. Swimming lessons for Years 4 to 6 take place at the local Paradise Pool.
Littleport Community Primary School is affiliated to the Witchford Schools' Sports Partnership which runs a number of inter-school sports competitions during the course of the academic year. Our teams always enjoy the experience of competitive matches against pupils from other local schools, as well as the fresh air and exercise. Our after school sports clubs provide further opportunities for children to develop skills.
Throughout the year children across the school have the opportunity to compete in a variety of festivals. As well as KS1 and KS2 Sports Day, all children compete in our School Games Day which takes place in the Summer Term.
