P.E. Intent Statement
Throughout Early Years there are opportunities for children to become more culturally aware using the immediate environment of home, school and local area. Expectations, around pupils becoming effective communicators, are enhanced in school in partnership with increasing parental engagement.
Throughout Key Stage 1 there are opportunities for pupils to access outdoor learning, to develop existing skills from Early Years, within the maths and English curriculum. The cultural diversity of the North East is explored and the vibrancy celebrated to develop respect amongst our young citizens to uphold British Values.
Throughout Key Stage 2 pupils’ life skills are further developed to show an understanding and demonstration of the attitudes needed to recognise their own and others, social, emotional and mental well-being. The varied and rich enhancements offered to pupils develop their range of vocabulary and debating skills around current affairs.
By the end of primary school pupils are confident and clear communicators who are able to articulate their views and opinions, in a range of situations, thus enabling them to become responsible citizens who enhance the community they live in.
In terms of the specific P.E. curriculum our intent is that: -
Sport at Catchgate Primary School
Catchgate Primary School has a rich history of sporting success. We take part in a wide range of inter school sports organised by both our local associations and the local School Sport Partnership. We aim to provide as many opportunities as possible for children to be active and experience as many new sporting activities as possible during curriculum time and as part of after school clubs. We provide two hours of high quality Physical Education in all classes across the school and are committed to ensuring that our staff are constantly developing their skills to do this.
We have a great team across the school; Mrs Carlyon in Reception, Mr Shaw and Sports Apprentice, Miss McGough throughout the school. Mr Smith and Mr Simpson coach the boys football team. Mrs Temple and Mrs Errington manage and coach the girls netball. Mr Shaw and Mrs Hodgson coach and run the girls football team. Mr Shaw and Mrs Temple work with the gymnastics team and Mr Shaw the athletics teams.
