We love sport, keeping healthy and having fun 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.

Of all our sporting achievements, we are most proud of this one!




Hockey Tournament

A fantastic, fun day of hockey. We were very proud of all our hockey players, who not only showed excellent teamwork and individual skills, but also lots of perseverance and respect throughout the tournament. Well done to our Year 3&4 team, who were runners-up!!

A big thank you to Mr Goodenough, for all his amazing coaching 😊



Infant Agility

A very enthusiastic team of Year 1 and 2 children took part in the Canterbury Academy Sports Partnership ‘Infant Agility’ event recently. They had to complete different: running, jumping, balancing and throwing activities and everyone had a brilliant time!

Well done to all the boys and girls who took part.



Cross Country

Well done to all the runners who took part in the Canterbury Academy Sports Partnership

Cross Country event. Six local schools took part on Thursday and everyone had a very enjoyable afternoon of sport.

Thank you to Mr James and Mrs Benson for all your hard work.


Cross country is tough, so all the children who took part can be very proud of themselves!

Tag Rugby

Well done to our Year 5 & 6 Rugby teams who played so well and had lots of fun at the recent Canterbury Academy Sports Partnership Festival at Merton Lane.





The school Hockey Club children travelled to Folkestone, to play matches against Selindge Primary on the floodlit all-weather pitches! Everyone had a great time.

Thank you to Mr Goodenough, Mrs Benson and Mrs Waters for giving up their time to help make this trip possible.





What a game! Some of the football team played a wonderful game against Canterbury Primary recently. It was such an evenly matched game. Canterbury Primary ended up the winners and the final score was 2-1. Well done to both teams.







Cross Country

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 smiley

'Golden Mile'


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 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!
