Physical Education

The national curriculum for physical education aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities
  • are physically active for sustained periods of time
  • engage in competitive sports and activities
  • lead healthy, active lives

At St Teresa's. pupils have two hours of PE timetabled per week through which we develop the six areas of activity as set out in the National Curriculum – Dance; Games; Gymnastics; Athletics; Outdoor and Adventurous activities; Swimming. Children are given the opportunity to swim during KS2 and we aim for all pupils leaving the school to be able to swim at least 25m. .

Sports taught include football; tag rugby; netball; basket ball; kwik cricket and short tennis, as well as athletics. All pupils take part in a range of tournaments and sports festivals both within school between year groups and with other schools.
