Statement of Intent
At St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that ALL children have the right to grow up 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 Sport Funding in the following ways to improve PE and sport participation and to enable pupils to develop a healthy, active lifestyle; exposing the children 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 companies, we encourage our families to participate in activities, and to join sports clubs within their local community, that go beyond the curriculum. We offer some of our most vulnerable and disadvantaged children the opportunity to experience sports/competitive sporting events and activities that they would otherwise not have access to. Our aim is to instill a passion and enthusiasm for sport that will be life-long for our children and their families. Our hope is that our families and young people will take part in local sports clubs, creating a greater sense of community and sharing through the love of sport and being active. We strive to change attitudes and life styles, in the hope of sustainability in the fight against obesity.
At St Gregory's we believe that everyone has the right to stay healthy and to be fit. To have access to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay fit and well (Article 24).
