St Thomas' Catholic Primary School

Truth and Courage

“Pupils at St Thomas’ Primary make rapid progress as they move through the school and achieve highly in all the subjects taught. They are exceptionally well prepared by the time they leave the school to start the next stage of their learning.”

Physical Education

P.E. is taught by Miss Leyland, Mr Jones & ASM Sports (Tuesday afternoon). Pupils are offered a variety of sports activities within the curriculum that include gymnastics, dance, games, swimming and water safety and athletics activities. Sports activities include football, netball, cross-country, tag-rugby, hockey, rounders, kwik-cricket, tennis, swimming and athletics. Games lessons are mixed and boys and girls participate in all of these activities. Pupils are taught to acquire and develop skills, select and apply skills, tactics and compositional ideas, evaluate and improve their performance, and improve their knowledge and understanding of fitness and health. P.E. is an important aspect of the curriculum and, unless there is a sound medical reason why a child cannot participate, they are expected to do so. If a child needs to be excused, a letter stating the reasons why must be sent to the child’s teacher. Pupils in Key Stage 2 attend swimming lessons at Denstone Prepatory School. Swimming hats are required for all children, swimming goggles may only be worn with written parental permission, and precautions need to be taken if a child is suffering from a veruca. Pupils in Year 6 have the opportunity to participate in a residential outdoor education course, which usually takes place in the Summer term.

National Dance Day

Stoke City star visits St Thomas'

On Tuesday 4th February, our year 6 pupils were visited by Stoke City star Liam Lindsay. He came into speak to the pupils to finish off their Autumn term vehicle that was centred around Stoke-on-Trent, its history and the club itself. The children were able to ask him lots of questions to gain a better insight into what life as a footballer was like, but also to find out more about him. The whole class thoroughly enjoyed his visit and inspired them all!
