Our Vision for Physical Education
The over-arching aim of Gatehouse Primary Academy Sports Vision Statement is to ensure that all children leave the school at the end of KS2 with the ability to continue as lifelong participants of physical education (PE), predominantly through extra-curricular club participation.
- Aim 1 – To ensure that all children leave Gatehouse with a broad exposure to different sports which in turn will contribute to becoming lifelong participants of PE.
• Aim 2 – To increase the participation/ engagement levels of all children within the school.
• Aim 3 – To increase the skills and knowledge of staff through CPD.
• Aim 4 – To ensure there is sustainable impact from the expenditure beyond the funding years.
Please read our Vision Statement below for further information.
Sports Relief 2020
Over the course of the week, all children across the school have had the opportunity to contribute to running a marathon as well as taking part in a circuit session set up in the hall.
The children worked in pairs throughout the activities - running a combined two miles between them in order to total up to a class marathon of 26 miles. We are extremely proud of the children, particularly for their perseverance and the smiles at the end of their achievement told the whole story. Well done everyone!

Football: Gatehouse 1 - 3 Westcliff
On a wet and windy evening on the Gatehouse playing field, both Gatehouse and Westcliff met in their first fixture of the football season. The match was played in fantastic spirits, with Gatehouse taking a 1-0 lead into half time, courtesy of a long-range effort from Troy. In the second half, Westcliff fought back and scored three on the bounce to take the final score to 3-1. An excellent game of football which was well supported by parents from both sides. We look forward to a re-match later this term!
A big thank you to Mr Mugford for refereeing the fixture!
Water Safety Talk - Surf Lifesaving
KS1 and KS2 have been learning about how to keep safe both in and near the water. We were lucky enough to have the Above Water charity join us in school to share some key messages and misconceptions about what it means to keep safe at the water's edge, as well as some strategies to consider should you decide to go into the water.
Thank you to Brendan from Above Water who gave a number of very informative sessions across the school to help keep us safe!

Bowls Taster Session
Last week, our Year 6 pupils were lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit Dawlish Bowls Club and take part in a series of activities which allowed them to experience the disciplines required to play a game. Through activities such as target practice for line and length as well as small group coaching, the children's skills certainly developed over the course of the session with many showing a keen interest to continue in the future.
A big thank you to Rick Purcell and the members of Dawlish Bowls Club for organising these sessions.
Should your child wish to continue playing Bowls outside of school, there are sessions set up for children from Gatehouse to take part in every Tuesday after school from 3.30-4.30. Parents/Guardians should attend the first session to establish memberships and collection arrangements where necessary.

Hockey Taster Session
Year 5 pupils visited Dawlish College to take part in a taster session for Hockey, which was organised by Teign Hockey Club. The session was split into three parts where children took part in a series of dribbling, control and shooting skills before putting this altogether within a match environment. It was great to see so many children taking part in the sport for the first time as well as many picking up the skills very quickly!
Should your child express an interest in taking up Hockey with Teign, please visit the website link below:
