Being active and healthy
At Maulden Lower School we believe that sport, physical activity and wellbeing enriches the lives of our children. From our sporting efforts both in and out of school we use our values and always aspire to do our very best. Children's learning is based around indoor and outdoor sports, games, dance, gymnastics and athletics sessions.
Each year we are very proud to have Sports Ambassadors who proudly wear their sports leader t-shirts and represent and support Maulden Lower School in a range of physical activities. Their role includes supporting key stage one children in external tournaments and representing sportsmanship in all of their activities. Over the years the Sports Ambassadors have been chosen to help set up and run school sporting and physical activities.
