PE is a very important part of the life at St. Teresa’s Primary School. We provide a variety of opportunities for the pupils so that they can work as an individual, in pairs or in group games and activities. All KS1 and KS2 Children receive 2 hours of timetabled PE each week.
Children swim regularly, at the the local pool, throughout the academic year. We work hard to ensure that the vast majority of children are able to swim 25 metres by the time they finish in Year 6.
The school has recently been awarded the Active Mark Platinum Award for outstanding PE and sport provision. This is the 5th consecutive year that the school has won this coveted award.
Children are encouraged to get fitter, appreciate the importance of a healthy lifestyle and begin to understand how an active lifestyle affects their health and fitness.
We encourage and promote good sporting values, fairness and respect in our lessons, clubs and in competitions we compete in outside of school.
Our school offers a wide variety of free sports clubs throughout the year. They are led by our coaches and are available for different age groups during school lunchtimes as well as after school.
Competition is a key part of P.E. at St. Teresa’s and we always encourage the children to challenge themselves in every lesson, club or competition they take part in.
The school values the provision of PE and sport and employs a number of PE instructors from the delegated budget (outside of the sports grant), to ensure that PE and school sport are sustainable in the future.
