We love sport at Chartham Primary and our long-held ethos is to give sporting opportunities and experiences to all our children.
In 2016 we were awarded the Canterbury Schools Fair Play Trophy and, of all our sporting achievements, we are most proud of this one!
The Green House Team managed to retain the Sports Day Trophy this year! Well done to them but also to the Yellows, Reds and Blues - you all did really well and everyone had lots of fun!
The Year 6 boys football team did ever so well to win the annual 5-a-side schools tournament at Lenham Primary School in July. Thank you to all the boys, parents and of course Mrs Waters, for supporting and representing the school on a Saturday.
The annual Biathlon was attended by over 30 keen runners and cyclists. All the children did brilliantly and certainly deserved their ice lolly at the end! Thank you to Mrs Benson for helping to make this event possible.
Well done to all the children who attended the first Cross Country event of the year on Saturday. It was a terrific turn out and, as always, we were very proud of you all!
Every runner tried their very best and, in addition, there were lots of Chartham runners in 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the different races! Thank you to Mums and Dads for supporting this event

The children are very excited about the new yellow 'footprints' which will soon be appearing around the playground!
These footprints will map the route the children can run. Each class will try to run/jog/walk perhaps 2 or 3 laps of the course each day...by the end of the week, every child hopefully has run a full mile! (approximately 11 laps)
(Hopefully the teachers will be bringing in their plimsolls too!)
Thank you Mrs Reid for creating such an amazing Golden Mile display in the hall!
