Sport is a fundamental part of our school life at St Theresa’s; each pupil participates in regularly games, gymnastics and swimming lessons along with the opportunity to attend extra curricular clubs.
PE specialists from All For Sport deliver high quality games lessons inline with the national curriculum which develop each pupils physical, thinking and social skills. Pupils will also participate in gymnastics lessons, which will be lead by the class teacher and support by the PE specialists.
Pupils are given with the opportunity to attend a wide range of extra curricular activities that extends their learning. There are a range of clubs run by school staff and by external providers, more information can be found on the parents & carers page.
Competition is important at St Theresa’s and many of our clubs which run will feed into a BPSS competition. Pupils who attend these clubs will have to attend an initial trial to become members of the squad, those whom have been selected will then attend squad training with a view to be selected for competitions and school matches.
We also have Sports Leaders and a Sports Council who assist with the improvement and development of school sport.
We have achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award ‘having exceeded the criteria in every category’. We entered 28 competitions including representing Barnet at the London Youth Games finishing a magnificent 18th out of 33 schools.
Mr Troy is the subject leader and will be again supported by our competitions manager Mr Rock. Mr Troy will lead the boys and girls football teams with Miss O’Brien overseeing the netball team.
The same structure as last year will be followed with our sporting after-school clubs on a Tuesday and Thursday. Each club will be predetermine depending on the events and competitions that the Barnet Partnership of School Sport offers. A list of competitions and festivals we plan to enter will be posted on the sports notice board in due course. Letters will be sent out to parents offering children the opportunity to attend a trail prior to the club commencing.
We look forward to this years sporting calendar and will continue to build upon our sporting success!
