School Uniform Donations

We are very proud of our school uniform, and value the sense of belonging and identity that pupils and students get from wearing it.  However, we are aware that with the rising costs of living, it can be difficult for families to always buy brand new items of uniform.  With this in mind, we are committed to ensuring access to the correct uniform is never a barrier to learning. 

 

We have always supported families via lost property items and/or kind donations of second-hand school uniform.  However, in order to continue to support as many families as possible, we would be grateful for donations of any items of uniform that are in good condition. These will be then available for sale at a discounted rate to anyone who may need to make use of the facility.  The proceeds of any sales will go to the PTA.

 

If you do have any problems obtaining any items of school uniform, please do contact us, in the strictest of confidence, at pupilservices@sweynepark.com

Parents’ Forum

We value the importance of working with families, and always appreciate any feedback.  Our Parents’ Forum, which meets half-termly, is an ideal opportunity for me and other senior staff to welcome parents into Sweyne Park and discuss any issues about school life, which are not directly linked to individual pupils.  This Forum is open to any parents/carers, and if you would like to be involved, please do contact our Assistant Headteacher, Richard Bradley, who oversees this important part of school life.

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend.

Castle View school 2 - 4 The Sweyne Park School

Year 9 Football Post Match Report

Two goals from Kye, a goal each for Sam and Daniel were enough to seal another important victory on Tuesday as our team beat CastleView to progress to the District Cup Final.    

 

With storm Eunice playing a role in making the conditions difficult, we knew a win was imperative – but we did not make it easy on ourselves.

 

We immediately forgot about the conditions and began playing the ball from the back. This allowed CastleView to apply early pressure and win the ball for an easy score, 1-0. 

 

CastleView looked comfortable at home and were quick to counter when they disrupted our play. George and Micky worked tirelessly to jump start our campaign.

 

Then the electric Kye won the ball high up the pitch beat the defender and hit the ball across the keeper straight into the top right-hand corner of the goal from 18 yards out, magnificent strike. 1-1. 

 

With the tide beginning to turn we were keen to get another goal. George was the first to try his luck, before Ronnie headed the ball against the keeper. 

 

The frustration of going so close allowed a lapse in concentration and communication as the backline tried to play offside and CastleView’s striker slipped past our defence to score. 2-1. 

 

We immediately asserted our dominance in the second half. due to the team showing outstanding team spirit. We started to share the ball more and were quickly rewarded. 

 

Kye and Micky were everywhere , pulling and pushing the CastleView defence in every which way. The hard work and persistence paid off when Kye took a corner which hit Sam’s shoulder to level the game. 2-2.

 

We continued to apply pressure, but CastleView remained stubborn opponents and began to push back our attacks. Daniel led the charge from the front and did not stop running. This paid off when he chased a loose ball which saw him beat the last defender go one-on-one with the keeper and smash it emphatically into the goal. 2-3.

 

CastleView desperately tried to get a foothold in the game but our defence led by Oliver remained firm. Another piece of magic happened when Kye picked the ball up on the left wing and crossed it into the box where Daniel attempted to poke the ball home but evaded it allowing the ball to trickle home. 2-4.

 

The full time whistle we greeted with a big roar and celebrations, as it signalled a spot in the final and the continuation of our unbeaten run. The result really demonstrated the team’s determination and character which was incredibly impressive. 

 

The final is the 24th of March 2022 – Against FitzWimarc School
