Our Vision

For all children at Coatham to experience good quality physical education with a high expectation to succeed to their full potential in a competitive environment.   Through opportunities for sport in the local environment, we aim to develop skills that nuture a desire for life long health.

Children, as they develop, are able to learn traditional sports as well as additional activities that support and develop fitness. Each playground has equipment outside during lunchtime providing opportunities for our children to be active. Swimming is provided in the autumn and spring term for some classes.
All children are expected to play a full and active part, at their own level, in this area of the curriculum and staff work hard to promote school policy of full involvement and enjoyment.
We encourage the taking part and the improvement of their own skills.
We have a variety of after school sports of a more competitive nature. Our school has two football teams and they are in regular football leagues with local schools.
Our school is very proud of its commitment to competitive sport, PE and keeping our children fit and healthy. The school currently follows a scheme of work which covers learning new skills and sports, fitness and competition. Coatham has a PE Assessment system in place across school. We work in partnership with School Sports Partnership and a cluster of schools with the aim of providing competitive sports in school and with other schools. If appropriate we use professional coaches to enhance the children’s experience of a variety of sports. We provide two PE sessions per week for each class. The expectations are that children will bring a named PE kit to school each day for indoor and outdoor use. School has recently funded spare kits to enable all children to access all their PE sessions. (These kits are washed immediately after use )
We attend and have success in a variety of sporting competitions within our cluster and in the Redcar area. We currently also provide a range of after-school and lunch time sports sessions. These include football, table tennis, rugby and gymnastics.
