Sport at The Cathedral School
PE and Sport Vision Statement
Every child should have the opportunity to develop physical confidence and competence and a passion for being physically active.
Our children will appreciate the need to respect their bodies through an understanding of the importance of exercise, nutrition and hydration.
We also strive to give as many children as possible the opportunity to participate in competitive sports during their school life, giving them the prospect of understanding what it is like to be part of a team, and to be able to win and lose with equal grace.
This should allow our children to develop into physically literate pre-adolescents who can choose which activities they would like to continue participating in in later years.

God, let me play well but fairly.
Help me to learn something that matters once the game is over.
Let competition make me strong but never nasty.
Always let me help my opponent up.
Never catch me rejoicing in the adversity of others.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy; if I am beaten, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
If through sport I can set an example, let it be a good one.
We, the child, the teacher, the official, the spectator, shall show good sporting behaviour towards everyone.
We pledge to have respect every day, in every sport and for everyone.
Accepting victory and defeat graciously, treating everyone fairly, speaking considerately and politely and accepting official’s rules and decisions without complaining, we shall abide by the rules of the event.
We shall applaud achievements and perseverance, give positive comments throughout, to competitors, officials, teachers and spectators.
