Sporting Clubs at Longmoor!
Children at Longmoor love to get active afterschool - therefore our sporting clubs are always a huge success!

Competitions and Festivals
At Longmoor, we take part in as many sporting competitions and festivals as we can. It is always a pleasure to see our children get stuck into competitive sport and try work as a team. The children always show excellent levels of enthusiasm and fair play skills. We also take part in sporting festivals which provide great opportunity for children to try something new and learn new skills. Working alongside Erewash School Sports Partnership provides so many great opportunities for our children to play against teams from other local primary schools. We also organise many more events with local primary schools which has been a great success!
Throughout the year, all children compete in competitive team sports through intra (class V class) competitions.
Well done to everyone at Longmoor for taking part and showing enthusiasm towards sport and competition. Win, lose or draw - you're all superstars!

Did you know that the Chief Medical Officer guidelines suggest that all children should be active for 60 minutes a day?
At Longmoor we aim to ensure that our pupils are active for at least 30 minutes of the school day.
How could our pupils be more active out of school? 5 Top Tips!
1. Join a club - we offer many but there are also loads of great clubs running in Long Eaton. We regularly hand out club leaflets so keep your eyes peeled!
2. Go outdoors! Go for a walk or run. Meet your friends and play an active game.
3. Online at home workouts! Try the Joe Wicks school workouts. You'll find these on YouTube!
4. Walk where possible - try walking, cycling or scooting to school if you can!
5. Turn off the TV/Game and make time for exercise! It's fun and makes you feel great!
