School Sports Partnership
Wednesday 17th November 2021
After winning the QEGS Cluster competition last week, Osmaston CE A Team competed in the SSP round of the competition on the 17th November 2021 at Highfields School, Matlock.
There were 6 other schools competing, who had also won their cluster events or were runners up.
In the pool stages, Osmaston won all three of their games, convincingly, only conceding one try in all three games.
As a consequence, the team proceeded to the semi-finals stages. In this round, Osmaston played Lea in a very close and exciting battle. At the final whistle, the score was 2-2, so it was decided a golden goal would decide the winners. Fortunately, Osmaston achieved this very quickly after play was resumed.
In the final, Osmaston were up against Ashbourne Primary, who they had already played and beaten 6-0. However, this time, it was a much closer game. Tiredness and nerves were kicking in and mistakes were becoming more frequent. However, the team really pulled together and won the final 4-2.
Congratulations to the team, especially as the preparation time for this tournament was extremely short and many of the children had not played before because of COVID restrictions over the last 18 months. Many other schools commented on their high standard of play. They played very well as a team and supported each other brilliantly. Well done!

Year 5/6 SSP football tournament
On Wednesday 11th October Osmaston A team took part in the SSP football tournament at Anthony Gel School and this is how they played. In their first match against Eyam they drew 0-0; their second match was against Kirk Ireton,who they beat 3-0, they went on to win their pool and they played the winners of each pool. The first pool winners they played were Baslow (pool A winners) it was a tough game and 0-0; the next game against Hulland (pool B winners) we won 1-0. Osmaston and Baslow were level on points so they played 5 minutes of golden goal (which was very tense) but nobody scored so it went to a penalty shootout which Osmaston won 4-3. Congratulations to Osmaston for coming first.

A massive well done to the year 5 and 6 pupils who took part in the SSP Tri-Golf tournament held at Highfields, Matlock. Everyone who took part played brilliantly and worked very well together as a team. The effort that was put in resulted in the pupils taking first place and winning gold!
13 holes were played in total, and the team never took more than three shots to hole the ball each time. In the thirteenth hole Joe even managed a hole in one!!
We won the tournament with just 30 points, second place went to Kniveton who were just 4 points ahead of us with 34 and third place was All Saints B with 36.
Everyone who took part had a great time, even the wet weather couldn't dampen our spirits!

It was a lovely sunny day and everyone had a great time. By winning this competition we have earned a place in the SSP round which is being held in Matlock on Tuesday 27th June. Unfortunately for some of the year 6 pupils, this is a clash with their first transition day at QEGS so we will have to take a slightly different team.
Well done to everyone involved!

A special thank you goes to Roisin and Maddie; due to a leg injury Maddie was unable to play which meant Roisin stepped in at the last minute to ensure the team still got to go and Maddie still went along to support!
The tournament was very closely fought. There were ten schools in total and we came sixth. Game 1 was against Bishop Lonsdale and we won 5-4. Game 2 we won 9-4 against Bagthorpe Primary.

Our last game was against Woodland View Primary and we lost this 6-7.
As you can see from our results, we played very hard throughout the tournament and stood our ground against some much bigger schools. The overall winners ended up being Woodland View Primary who we played lastly and only lost by one point against. Second was Bishop Lonsdale and third was Barnby Road Acadamy, both teams that we had beaten in our games.
Everyone at Osmaston is very proud of our netball teams success this year, well done!!!
QEGS Football Tournament Year 5/6
Osmaston Primary CE School took part in the mixed football tournament at QEGS on the 27th April, entering 4 teams of 7 children. All the teams played 4 matches each, with each game being 5 minutes long in the pool stages.
The games were very competitively played and with good spirit and sportsmanship. Teams B, C and D all played extremely well with some very close results but unfortunately narrowly missed getting through to the semi-finals. Team A won 3 of their pool games, so they did progress through to play Norbury in the Semi-Final. This was a very close game, resulting in a fantastic goal from Joe Stelfox which was enough to put the team through to the final against Parkside A.
This was a very close contested game, but Parkside did have most of the possession. However, Osmaston A defended courageously and it was on the very final kick of the game, that the goal came from Parkside to win the final.
Well done to all of the children who took part.
A huge well done to the other year groups that played in the other two tournaments, especially Y3/4 who won their event.
The results from all three competitions are as follows:
2nd St Oswald's A
3rd Osmaston B
1st Osmaston A
2nd Parkside B
1st Parkside A
2nd Osmaston A
3rd Norbury and Doveridge
Thank you to any parents that volunteered to help as Team Managers.
SSP High 5 Netball Tournament
After a brilliant performance at the QEGS cluster tournament last week, our A team progressed to take part at the SSP High 5 Netball Tournament held at Lady Manners School in Bakewell on Tuesday 21st March. The team consisted of Thomas Mason, Ella Bennett, Maddie Waring, Bella Mills, Henrietta Stock-Clarks, Edward Carroll and Henry Morton.
In the first round we should have played four games, however one school didn’t turn up so we won one game by default and then only had to play three. We won all three games. The first game we played was against Baslow which we won 10-0, then we won 10-0 again against Tansley. Lastly in this round we won 3-0 against Hathersage. We progressed to the semi-final which was against All Saints, Matlock; we beat them 7-0 giving us a place in the final. We had to play Great Longstone in the final and we are very pleased to say we won this game too, 2-0, meaning we won gold and will be taking part in the Derbyshire County Competition in the summer. The whole team played brilliantly and our defence and marking was particularly strong meaning we did not let any goals in throughout the whole tournament!
