The School 


Rickling CofE Primary School's  vision is that all pupils will thrive through faith and nurture.  As a community they agreed that 'Life in all its fullness' from John's gospel was a fantastic motto for the school. Life in all its fullness means that they live a varied and full life full of learning, growing, helping, reward, joy, excitement and caring for each other. At school they aim to help each other to learn how to do this. It is not always easy to live life in this way and so the school help each other with the challenges that come along the way. As a Church of England School Rickling CofE Primary School also look to Jesus to help and guide them.

Each child is treated as an individual, with individual needs and abilities, and everyone is encouraged to try to achieve their best and to have high aspirations.

Rickling CofE Primary School enables children to become self-confident and resourceful individuals, with a broad and varied skill set, in readiness for the next step of their schooling journey. 

Who's coming? 


When I was younger, I was a massive football fan. I watched it all the time with my brothers. One day I saw a player score a goal and do a somersault to celebrate, I thought to myself; wow, I wish I could do that. The next few weeks I drove my mum crazy cartwheeling and being upside down in the house so she took me to a gymnastics club, red bridge gymnastics club I was aged 6. The club talent identified me and told me to more to a better facilitated club called east London, I was here for 5 years which is where my love for the sport grew. I found myself progressing rapidly and was spotted by the national head coach, I was put onto the elite performance pathway along with other children my age from various clubs.

It wasn’t long before I was competing In my first competition for Great Britain, I loved every minute and thought to myself, this is what I want to do, I’m going to make it to the Olympics one day. I thrived of the buzz of competing and used this to my advantage to advance my gymnastics career.

10 or so extra years of training and I have now achieved British, European and Commonwealth medals. My journey, however, is far from over and in the future I hope to be competing for my country at the Olympics!

Who are we?


Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Rickling CofE Primary School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns.

Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.

While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!

Sports For Champions events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. Sports For Champions is an audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance.

During the assembly, Sports For Champions athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, Sports For Champions envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.

Alongside Team Sports For Champions, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.

Sports For Champions offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.

Rickling CofE Primary School will be receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Courtney Tulloch on the 26th of November 2021 and we need your support!

The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.

Why is this important?

Rickling CofE Primary School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdown and with the help of a visit from Courtney Tulloch the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.

Rickling CofE Primary School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Courtney Tulloch and to raise funds for key resources for Rickling CofE Primary School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
