Welcome to Richardson Endowed Primary School

Swimming Gala Champions


In a very busy sporting week at Smalley, we started with an amazing success.

Despite only having a team of 10, we attended the Amber Valley Schools swimming gala at Belper Leisure Centre, on Monday morning. 

Each child swam in an individual race, along with paired races, girls and boys relay and a whole team relay. We performed fantastically, with some children swimming more than one length. In the final team relay, we finished almost 2 lengths in front of the other schools. 

Out of 21 races in total, we achieved a superb

10 x 1st places

5 x 2nd places

2 x 3rd places. 

As a result, we finished in overall first place by a clear 12 points, with each child receiving a medal and certificate and a trophy! A massive thank you to all the children for cheering and supporting each other on. Thank you also to those parents who were able to attend and cheer us on. 

Fantastic start to the week!
