What does Physical Education, Sport and Physical Activity (PESPA) look like at St Teresa's?
Our Statement of Intent
At St Teresa's Catholic Primary School, we believe that all children have the right to:
Our main goal is to ensure all children enjoy Physical Education, develop confidence in this subject, are active during their learning experience, build on skills we see as fundamental from year to year and most importantly, enjoy the subject! We want children to feel a sense of 'self worth' and 'self achievement', building on the experiences they have in school at local sports clubs and groups at evenings and during the weekend. Our aim is to instill a passion and enthusiasm for sport that will be life-long for our children and their families.
Elite Community Coaching
We use some of our PE and Sports Premium Funding to upskill staff alongside Elite Community Coaching. They provide us with afterschool, extra-curricular clubs as well as in curriculum coaching opportunities for children. They are also developing an extensive range of videos to support Remote Learning and for lessons which can be delivered in 'class bubbles'. Some of these can be viewed below and we hope you enjoy them...
Congratulations to our school football team, who were crowned Ashford and District Sports Association Middle School Football Champions on Saturday 24th March.
On a reasonably bright and sunny morning at St Teresa's, the team were placed in the group stages against Challock, St Simon's and Goat Leas. We overcame Challock and Goat Leas, winning both of these matches 2-0. However, we lost 2-1 against St Simon's meaning we just finished first in our group on goal difference.
In the semi finals, we played a very useful Mersham side. However, the power and passing of our team meant we made it through to the final. The final was an evenly contested affair against Hamstreet; both teams were deadlocked at 0-0 at full time, meaning in this tournament the trophy was shared.
A massive thanks to our PTA, as well as to the parents of the players. However, the greatest thanks must go to the players themselves- all of your hard work and effort paid off!
