At Blessed Mother Teresa’s Catholic Primary School, we know that P.E. is an integral part of our curriculum.
We believe that the subject inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in physically-demanding activities and helps them to become confident in a way which supports their health and fitness throughout their lives. Therefore, we believe that our children should be physically active every day, whether through daily physical activity, P.E. lessons or extra-curricular activities.
We also believe that children should have the opportunity to compete in sport and other activities that build character and help to embed values such as team-work, fairness and respect.
We are proud to achieve Gold Level in the School Games Mark Awards.
About School Games Mark
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress.
What are the key criteria?
Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...
- Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
- Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
- Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
- Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?

This month we are focusing on the famous long distance runner, Mo Farah.
Sir Mo Farah, CBE, is a multiple Olympic, World and European champion – the UK's greatest ever athlete.
In summer 2017, Mo retired from the track with an impeccable record, with 10 gold medals to his name at successive World Championships and Olympic Games. He was the first athlete to win three long-distance doubles at successive World Championship and Olympic Games.
