Welcome to Hedworth Lane Sports 2021-2022

Well done to all of the pupils and staff at Hedworth Lane Primary School for achieving a ‘School of Excellence’ status from South Tyneside School Sports Network for 2021. We were awarded this certification for continuing to provide a range of sporting opportunities for our children during what have been very tricky times! Hedworth Lane endeavoured to place PE, school sport and physical activity at the heart of theirΒ recovery curriculum during last summer term! Amazing stuff!

Meet our Sports Council

SSOC 2021_2022

It was decided this year, that the School Sports Organising Crew chosen from Year 5 last year would continue in their role this year whilst in Year 6. Last year, the children were not able to enjoy their role to its full potential due to COVID restrictions but hopefully, this year, that will be remedied. They have 5 tasks which they must complete across the school year, with the help of the PE lead, to achieve 5-star status. Good luck guys!

SSOC Launch Event

On January 21st the SSO Crew attended a launch event at Temple Park. They took part in a range of activities to develop their leadership, communication and resilience. They also had a lot of fun!


This year we have both a girls’ and a boys’ football team. The girls are taking part in the Girls CVL and fixtures began in the Autumn Term. The boys are part of the Newton League, taking on teams in the local area: East Boldon, West Boldon, Biddick Hall and Hedworthfield. Supported by our coach, Amandeep Atkar, we wish them the best of luck this year.
