'For every future, for every child'

PE and Sport

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 are passionate at the school for providing OPPORTUNITY wherever possible and our commitment to sport and PE is part of how we do this.

We aim to follow the National Curriculum and build upon this with our work in after-school clubs and events. We provide opportunities for our children to participate in a range of sports and physical activities because we know that such activities can build character embed positive values. Our own school values of Friendship and Perseverance are  actively promoted through this

We believe that a high-quality physical education curriculum should inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities.

We aim for pupils:

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


We prioritise our PE Funding to improve PE and sports participation, enable pupils to develop a healthy, active lifestyle

and expose pupils to a wide range of sporting activities and opportunities.
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.
