At Salmestone we promote the School games, Spirit of the Games Values in all of the sports we do. The values were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around, and focus on personal excellence through competition.
The six values are as follows...
With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.
Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other's success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self-belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.
Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.
Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self-discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!

Dodgeball is a hugely popular sport at Salmestone. It is our most subscribed after school club and is often played on the playground at break and lunch.
On Wednesday 30th November we took 6 children to represent Salmestone at the Thanet Dodgeball competition. All of their practice during the after school club really showed as they only lost 1 game!
Below is a picture of the children in their starting position ready to start their first competitive game.
Congratulations to all the runners who took part in the Thanet Primary Cross Country league meeting at Quex Park on Saturday 25th February. We fielded a squad of over 30 runners. For some it was their first time whilst others were completing their final run at this level. Everyone ran really well and there were seven runners who finished in the top 20 in their year group but a special mention must go to Rebecca in Year 5 who finished 5th in a field of 91. Also Amelie and Talha in Year 6 who have turned out in all weathers to represent Salmestone at every race since Year 3. You should all feel very proud of yourselves.
