Warrington Wolves Visit for Anti-Bullying Week 14th-18th November 2022

The Warrington Wolves joined us this morning during Anti Bullying Week to share some important information about anti-bullying and spread the important message of 'reach out' during our collective worship. We were greeted by some special guests including three first team players (Dan Walker, Peter Mata'Utia and Gil Dudson) and Wolfie himself. They helped us recognise bullying and explain ways of dealing with it by reaching out and telling a responsible adult like our teachers, coaches, parents and carers.

All children from Year 3 took part in a Change for Life festival at Cardinal Newman High School. Children enjoyed a range of non competitive activities led by year 9 leaders from Cardinal Newman.

Netball Finals

On Tuesday 7th March St Elphin's Year 5/6 netball team took part in the netball finals after making it through from level 2 tournament held at Cardinal Newman High School. They played extremely well showing lots of energy and determination against lots of other amazing teams.

Both boys and girls enjoyed success at their latest competitions held by the School Games.

The Year 5/6 girls finished 3rd in the County Finals after qualifying through their region’s tournament. And the boys Year 5/6 A and B teams did tremendously (with the A team winning all their games in their region tournament) and have qualified for the county finals yet to be announced. 


Year 5/6 Football - 19/05/23

St Elphins had 3 teams (A, B and C) representing the school during a hot morning at Cardinal Newman high school against 20 other teams. Congratulations to the A team for reaching the Semi Final and qualifying to play at Liverpool FC training academy next term. There was also another great effort for the B team who sadly got knocked out in the Quarter Final - all the teams gave it their all! 

Match Report

After qualifying for the regional finals before the half term, St Elphin’s we given the opportunity to play at Liverpool Academy. Emotions were running high and these intensified after walking through the gates of the new state of the art training academy and seeing the huge Liverpool badge on the side of the building - the children were buzzing. 

St Elphins were paired in a group with High Legh, Ravenbank and St Joseph’s. After narrowly losing their first game to St Joseph’s with a powerful long range effort, St Elphin’s fought back to win their second game 3-1 with headed goals from Lee and one from Myles after some fancy footwork. Unfortunately, St Elphins lost their remaining game 1-0 and had a goal saved on the line in the last minute which would’ve had surely drawn the game. 

St Elphin’s were then placed into the ‘Europa league’ for the remaining games. Here, they found their form and beat Chapleford and Christ’s Church to finish the day in winning style with excellent goals from Lee Stewart and some magnificent saves from Seb Moore who kept the lead for St Elphin’s. A huge thanks also goes to Noah’s and Ryan’s dad who helped with the coaching and sideline decisions.

This year St Elphin’s has formed a strong link with the founder of Rugby Tots (Andrew Wright). Rugby Tots helps to develop fundamental skills like agility, balance and coordination and a fun and engaging way. The children and parents of reception and Year 1 have really enjoyed the sessions. Andrew will be working with us again next year and add an additional activity to our extra curricular timetable.

The children had a fantastic time at our EYFS sports day. The children enjoyed taking part in some running races and completed a carousel of different activities.

They all did really well and joined in brilliantly. Our Year 6 children joined us for the morning, to help with our younger children- a big well done to everyone!
