Children at St. Teresa's participate in a wide range of sporting activities through a varied and exciting PE curriculum. We are very proud of our extensive range of after school clubs and our many sporting successes.
The PE curriculum is delivered by teachers, specialist PE teachers and Sports Coaches from Bee Active. All lesson are designed to be incredibly fun whilst aiding children’s physical development and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.
The early years programme of study complements the EYFS guidelines and is designed to improve children’s agility, balance and coordination in an incredibly fun environment. Sessions are brought to life by using a wide range of resources and media, to ensure children are enthused by physical activity and engaged in wider learning.
Key Stage 1
Children are given the opportunity to continue their physical development in a range of increasingly challenging and competitive situations. The activities still relate to wider themes across the national curriculum, complementing the children’s development in agility, balance, coordination and dance. Bee Active regularly hold activities for the local community at weekends and during the school holidays. For more information on any of the services they provide visit www.beeactive.co.uk
Key Stage 2
Key skills acquired in Key Stage 1 continue to be developed through a combination of gymnastics, dance, invasion games and swimming lessons.
Lessons are delivered by specialist PE teachers; Mr. Holloway and Stoke City Community Trust.
There are many opportunities for children to participate in after school clubs with a sporting focus:
Bee Active, cross-country, football, athletics, netball, basketball, handball and cricket.
PE Premium Funding at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School
All primary schools receive an additional yearly PE Premium grant from the Government. This extra funding is intended to heighten the effectiveness of PE provision in schools, and it is at the school’s discretion as to how the additional funding is spent.
Our school’s aim is to use the additional funding to improve the quality of teaching of PE, as well as engaging our children in high quality sporting activities, both curricular and extra-curricular. We endeavour to motivate individuals with a desire to develop their skills and talents and to inspire a lifelong interest in their health and well-being.
