At Marton we take sport very seriously and teach that it’s not about the ‘quick win’. We support the Sports Games Values of Determination, Respect, Honesty, Self-Belief, Teamwork and Passion through all our external competitions, internal competitions and through all our PE lessons and have been a School Games Gold award holder for two years.
In the introduction of sports award badges, our pupils are recognised for their achievement, perseverance, teamwork, and sportsman-ship; for responding to challenge, and for supporting others and developing coaching skills.
We have good links within the local community, the Macclesfield Cross Country partnership and many local sports clubs. These include Vale Juniors, Congleton Rovers, Macclesfield Harriers and Dane Valley Swimming club.
We compete in a large amount of sports, including:
Year 5 and 6 Small schools football, getting through to the Cheshire Finals.
Year 5 and 6 Congleton Football League
Congleton Cross Country (Year 3 through to Year 6)
Macclesfield Cross Country (Year 3 through to Year 6)
Year 5 and Year 6 Congleton Netball League
Year 5 and Year 6 Sandbach Quicksticks Tournament
Sports Hall Athletics @ Eaton Bank Academy
Year 5 and Year 6 Basketball.
Town Sport's Success
For a small rural school, we do achieve a lot of success in the field of sport and are the current Small Schools Champions in Congleton Town Sports. A title we have held for at least 5 years.
Charity through Sport
We are also supporters of the Congleton Rotary Club and participate in the Swimathon every year. We also take part in the annual Santa Dash for the East Cheshire Hospice. The children also reguarly take on sporting challenges to raise money for other charities including, Christies, The school Friends and Familiy and The Brain Nursery Trust in Uganda.
