Statement of Intent
At St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that ALL children have the right to grow up and to be happy and healthy individuals. We provide opportunities for our children to participate in a range of new and exciting sports and physical activities.
We spend our PE and Sports Funding the following ways:
- to improve PE and sports participation
- to enable pupils to develop a healthy, active lifestyle
- to expose pupils to a wide range of sporting activities and local sports clubs
We ensure access to highly skilled professional coaches that can support children in performing to their individual best. We believe that through making strong connections with local sporting provision, encouraging our families to participate in activities and to join sports clubs in the local community that our sports provision goes beyond the basic curriculum.
We offer some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged children the opportunity to experience sports/competitive sporting events and activities that they might otherwise not have access to.
Our aim is to instil a passion and enthusiasm for sport that will be lifelong for our children and their families. Our hope is that our families and young people will take part in local sports offers, and as such create a greater sense of community and sharing through the love of sport and being active. We strive to change attitudes and lifestyles in the hope of sustainability in the fight against obesity and poor physical health.
Article 24: At St Gregory’s we believe that everyone has the right to stay healthy and be fit. We believe everyone has the right to access the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment and the information needed to help stay fit and well.
