Sports Day

May 2015                                           


Dear Parent/Carer


RE:     Addey and Stanhope Sports Day 2015


Please find below the details for this year’s Sports Day:


DATE                          Friday 5th June (please note this a change to the original date)

TIME                           9am - 2pm (finish time is approximate and may be slightly earlier/later)

VENUE                       Sutcliffe Park, SE9 5LW (map overleaf)


TRANSPORT            Bus 321 runs frequently from New Cross Gate station via Lewisham Way, Loampit Vale, Lee High Road, and stops near the entrance to Sutcliffe Park. 


Sports Day is a compulsory school day and all students are expected to attend and be on time - non-attendance will be followed up.  Participants must be in appropriate sports kit, preferably including house colours.  Spectators should also wear appropriate clothing (not school uniform) and are encouraged to wear house colours.  All students should bring a packed lunch, plenty of water to drink and precautions for the weather (eg. suncream, hat, umbrella etc).  Please note that once inside the stadium students cannot leave to go and buy food or drink and there is only limited access to drinking water there.  There are no changing facilities.  Parents may attend if they wish but any non Addey’s children must be accompanied by an adult.


Below are some ways to score points for your house:


*           Points awarded to houses for every student who attends Sports Day

*           Points awarded to houses for students wearing house colours - spectators and participants

*           Points awarded to houses for participants taking part in house colours

*           Every student who attends and behaves well will be entered into the prize draw

*           All participants entered into the prize draw


The vast majority of students make their own way to Sports Day very safely although some are taken by their parents.  If not travelling with parents we always recommend that students travel with a group of friends and not by themselves.  Please ensure your child knows how to get to Sports Day so that they can arrive safely and on time.


Yours sincerely


Mr B Cawley

Head of PE
