Wigton Moor

Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!

Our Teams

At Wigton Moor pupils are given a team which they remain part of until they leave us in Year 6.  Throughout school, they have the opportunity to compete against the other teams.  Adults in school give pupils team points when they believe they have gone above and beyond expectations or demonstrated one of the 4Cs particularly well.

Pupils also compete for team points in whole school competitions every term:

  • Autumn Term - pupils work together to create a team crest.
  • Spring Term - pupils work individually to score as many mathletics points as possible. 
  • Summer Term - pupils compete as teams throughout sports day
