At Yew Tree we always take great pride in our sporting achievements, this includes receiving the Gold School Games Mark Award in 2023!
Every year at Yew Tree we engage in many different competitions including tag rugby, basketball, dodgeball, netball, both boys and girls football and hockey. We travelled to East Cheshire Harriers for the Quadkids event, where two of our children finished in the top 3 overall in Tameside. Straight after this event, we journeyed to Great Academy Ashton for the Rounders final and we were proud to receive a trophy for 3rd place.
A part of our success this year has been our annual school Sports Day, where children engaged in a plethora of sporting activities. We divided the school into ‘houses’ to inject healthy competition and instill the core values of respect, integrity, teamwork, honesty, determination and self-belief.
We look forward to continuing to develop our PE provision and achieving further successes.

Our Cheer Team took part in the Tameside competition, they were amazing working together showing team spirit and a fabulous dance routine.
Our Sports Days were a great success as always, the pupils had great fun, watched on and supported by their parents / carers.
