Cathy has been supporting PE at Norman Gate School over many years but during the past 3 years has been a key part of our PE teaching funded by Government money to develop sport in schools.
Her deep knowledge of PE and Special Educational Needs (SEN) is a rich resource for us and the children have benefited enormously. The children really look forward to the sessions with Cathy who leads the sessions alongside Norman Gate Staff. The sessions are planned in conjunction with our curriculum and over the year all of the children work with Cathy.
The children make good progress in PE under her expert guidance and the staff develop their own knowledge, understanding and skills through this approach.
The impact of Lions in the Community can be measured in the progress that the children make, the skills that the staff develop to teach PE and the growing confidence in everyone in what can be a difficult subject to teach in our setting. It is great to see children who were reluctant to engage in PE now taking part, fully engaged, learning and of course having fun.
Children and Staff always look forward to PE with Cathy."
