Competition & Events

At Barugh Green we believe in healthy competition and teaching the children to do their best, play fairly and be gracious both in victory and defeat.  We feel it is important for all of our children to have the chance to represent our school and give all children from Years 3 to 6 the chance to represent our school once during each academic year.

We enter many competitions during the course of the year including multi-skills, team relays, cross country, hockey, football, tag rugby, sports hall athletics, triathlon, orienteering, rounders, cricket, tennis and some virtual events.  



In many sports we first attend a local qualifying event and if we are successful we then qualify for the Barnsley final.  The first two teams at the Barnsley final are usually asked to represent Barnsley at the South Yorkshire School Games.  For further information on events and competitions please see


 Results of all competitions we enter are displayed on the team active website -
