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:
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.

Year 2 had a fantastic trip to Seven Stories in Newcastle where they explored the centre, retold and re-enacted stories, made their own toy and explored the winter wonderland. They had a fantastic day.

Year 2 had a visitor from an Animal Aid charity Worker who taught us all about how we can care for animals in our environment and why some mini beasts are so important to our ecosystem. We made our own fruity mini beasts and tasted new fruits we hadn’t eaten before.
