Sport Advice and Information

PE and Sport Premium

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money. Schools receiving PE and sports premium funding must publish details of the way in which PE and sports premium funding is spent. 

 

At St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, we are committed to the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and helping them to lead healthy and active lives.

 

Objectives of spending in 2018-2019:

  • To introduce new inclusive games to the children in KS1 and KS2
  • To improve the provision of PE at St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School
  • To improve the standard of teaching PE across the whole school
  • To allow all children access to high quality sports coaching
  • To update and improve sports equipment and playgrounds
  • To broaden opportunities for children to participate in after school clubs
  • To develop a love of sport and physical activity
  • To increase participation in inter-school competitions and cluster competitions

 

Sustainability

We believe at St. Gregory’s that our actions in increasing participation and broadening the choice of activities on offer will help children to have a more positive attitude and mindset to PE and sport that we hope will become a valuable learning skill through their lives.

At St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School, every pupil participates in at least the minimum 2 hours of physical activity per week. Pupils across Key Stage One and Two take art in Games, Gymnastics, Dance and Swimming Lessons, planned and delivered by Physical Education Specialists. Lessons are fun and challenging yet offer structure to provide progression for all pupils regardless of ability. Lessons provide a balance between healthy competition and skill acquisition, allowing for development of social and emotional skills such as teambuilding and problem solving, as well as widening their physical abilities.

 

Gymnastics and Dance

 

In Key Stage One, pupils have been investigating a range of movements including rolls and jumps using different speed and levels. Pupils have learned to use space safely working both on the floor, mats and on apparatus. In Key Stage Two, pupils have been exercising balance and control through performing rolls and jumps using different speed and levels. Pupils have created sequences of controlled movement working both on the floor, mats and on apparatus. Pupils across the school have the chance to take part in creative dance lessons taught by a dance specialist.

 

Games

 

Key Stage One pupils have been exploring boxes of equipment and learning to work and share. They have been developing their own game ideas and discovering different equipment. Key Stage Two have experienced a variety of different activities including football, basketball, netball, handball, tag rugby, athletics, dodgeball, hockey, tri-gold, tennis, cricket and outdoor adventurous activity. Pupils have participated in lessons which follow a 4-part structure including warm-up, skill acquisition, modified game and cool down, reminding them of why we take part in PE and its importance for our health. Year 6 leaders are also encouraged to lead part of the warm up to increase their knowledge of the importance of warming up. Lessons continually assess pupil progress and allow for flexibility throughout, ensuring all pupils are stretched and challenged.

 

Swimming

 

Pupils at St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary school have access to high quality swimming lessons. Together this gives our pupils every chance to swim the required 25 metres by the time they complete Year 6. Through the success of swimming 100% of Year 6 have already achieved National. Also the success of the swimming team keeps improving with St. Gregory’s pupils achieving 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in galas, resulting in them representing South Warwickshire.

South Warks Tag Rugby tournament WINNERS at Claverdon RFU on Tuesday 21st June

A total of 7 schools contested this year's South Warks Tag Rugby tournament.  St Gregory's being the only school to field two full squads of 10 - with an 'A ' team and a 'B' team.

The 'B' squad consisted of six Year 6's - Eoin D (Capt); Aaron O; Dan L; Grace C-G; Greg M; Niamh L; and four Year 5's - William L; Lizzie C; Jamie M; Luke C.

They progressed to the Semi-Finals through the group stage - drawing with Wooton Wawen 5-5 (try scorers: Eoin); drawing with Claverdon (the hosts) 5-5 (Jamie 2; William; Aaron) and beating Tanworth 6-5 (Daniel L 2; Aaron; William; Eoin and Luke).

The 'A' squad consisted of all Year 6's - Ruben (Capt); Taylor H; Louis; Esther; Beth; Rebecca; Oscar; Cameron H; Raffy; Tom.

They progressed to the Semi-Finals through the group stage - defeating the previous year's winners, Welford 6-5 (try scorers: Taylor 4; Esther; Beth)  - in a match described by the referee as a contest between "two quality teams"; defeating Bidford 6-5 (Louis 3; Tom 2; Oscar) and defeating St Nicholas 5-3 (Louis 2; Ruben; Cameron).

At the SF stage: The 'B' squad was drawn against the 'A' squad in an exciting match of high quality tries (and not a single dropped pass!).  The 'A' squad coming out eventual winners by 6 tries (Ruben 2; Raffy; Tom; Oscar; Taylor) to 4 tries (Greg; Eoin; Jamie; Aaron).

 

The Final was a showdown between the hosts Claverdon and St Greg's A. The 'A' squad eventually winning 7-6 with St Greg's tries from Taylor 2; Oscar 2; Louis; Ruben; and Cameron H.

.

Footnote: The  A squad's success was built on that of the 'B' squad's efforts in training - as they continually pushed each other to greater heights of team cohesion.

St Gregory's overcome Seven Year Itch!!
 
Following a seven year interval, St Gregory's Catholic Primary Sportshall Athletics team, representing Southern Warwickshire, finally succeeded in winning, once again, the Level 3 Coventry, Solihull & Warwickshire School Games Primary Sportshall Final, held at North Solihull Sports Centre on Thursday 10th March.
 
Ten large schools competed in the event which had been won the two previous years by Willenhall Community Primary, Champions of Coventry East.  The captains of the St Gregory's team had experienced a second place finish on two previous occasions but this year a talented group of athletes triumphed in the smallest possible margin, of just - two points!!
 
With a squad of thirty pupils and a double-decker bus load of supporters, all playing a role in the final result, St Gregory's became County Champions for the third time, replicating wins in 2006 and 2009.  This could not have been achieved without the support of parents, teachers at the school and the inspiration of Andy Pozzi and Paul Bearman of Stratford Athletics Club.
