At Holy Name we are proud of all our children.
Children are encouraged and supported to take part in a range of different sporting activities through attending sporting events as well as having outdoor agencies providing opportunities to continue to develop a love for sport, exercise and well being.
As a school we use Premier Sport to provide us with great after school clubs for both KS1 and KS2.
We are proud to have Mini Mermaid Running Club UK at Holy Name. These programmes are for girls, ages 7-11, which combine physical activity and mindfulness to strengthen girls self-confidence, self-esteem and self-compassion. Girls take part in different themed curriculums that includes a mix of discussions, journaling, games and workouts to help a girl discover and celebrate her own worth and value. The co-designed curriculum celebrates heart, mind and body strength The multi-year programmes, include discussions, journaling, games, workouts and culminates with a 5km challenge. rnrnMini Mermaids use running; its simplicity makes it accessible to everyone. We work to get all girls involved, especially those at risk of stopping physical activity, by creating a fun, judgement-free environment in which girls feel safe exploring different types of movement. Running, in all its various forms, acts as the conduit through which girls experience the joy of being active and feel the connection between movement and well-being.
