It is the intention of St. Anne’s School that sport will be given a high priority as part of the taught curriculum and in our provision for out of school activities.
We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to realise their ‘sporting potential’ and hopefully take a lifelong interest and active participation in sport.
In order to achieve this we will:
- provide an atmosphere where sporting participation and success is recognised and valued;
- provide regular opportunities to participate in a positive and competitive environment;
- seek to develop a positive attitude towards sport and encourage a true sense of fair play;
- aim to cater for all needs and abilities;
Activities are open to all children, boys and girls work together as equals. Children with physical disabilities are particularly encouraged to join in with physical activities. Staff are committed to supporting the development and provision of better sport for all.
The taught curriculum covers Athletics, Dance, Outdoor Adventurous Activities, Gymnastics, and Games – Swimming is taught in Years 5 and 6. The Games Curriculum allows the children to participate in Hockey, Cricket, Football, Rugby, Netball, Tennis and Basketball. Specialist help is brought into the school to promote sport.
Opportunity exists for all children from Year R – Year 6 to develop their interest further by participating in our many and varied after school sporting clubs.
At St Anne’s the teaching and learning of P.E and sport is to become an embedded culture where children are inspired to progress and be proud of their achievements. We promote fair play and respect through all sporting opportunities to ensure our pupils enjoy being active.
