guided by the simple ethos that through introducing the children to a wide
range of team sports and individual events, we aim to instil a love of taking
exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Whilst we play our games to win we do not do
so at all costs and judge our success as a department on one simple criteria - after
the children have left All Hallows do they enjoy and voluntarily take part in
physical activity as part of their lives?
Through the activities we offer, we aim to instil in all pupils the
understanding that being a sportsman/woman involves so much more than just
to encourage independence though placing importance on the children’s ability
to be in the right place at a certain time with the right clothing and
equipment. We also encourage children to
play as part of a team and to respect our opponents and the officials, without
whom there would be no game. We also
appreciate that sport is full of ups and downs, challenges, rewards and many
memories. In this way it is representative of life, and a true vehicle for us
to help prepare children for the journey they will go on and to equip them to
cope with adversity with courage and success with humility.
enormously the role that parents play in our school sport. We appreciate the
hours standing on boundaries and side lines that you will give to supporting
the school over the years. Your support is much appreciated by the children and
shows our visitors and hosts that we respect the efforts of all children.
