At Holy Redeemer sports and PE have a very high profile. Our children love PE and sport and this enthusiasm and ethos alongside our excellent provision, are ably led by Miss Russell, Mrs Annis and our Sports Council (elected by their classmates each year). Mrs Annis is our dedicated PE teacher, and teaches a lot of the class PE lessons. This provision is enhanced by specialist coaches in some areas (cricket, tennis, football, rugby) and by our own Mrs Anderson who is a qualified netball and yoga coach. Miss Russell is our PE co-ordinator and is also working towards an FA coaching award.
Across the year we enter lots of tournaments, festivals and events in a wide range of sports and PE areas. Wherever possible we take as many teams as we can.
This year we are running after school clubs in netball, football, cross country running, fitness, and dance. Later in the year we also plan to offer country dancing and athletics.
Here are just a few of the sporting and PE opportunities that our pupils have had so far this year:
Sports Council Young Leaders undertook training with Gemma Ingram from Blessed Edward Oldcorne Catholic College. They will now be able to plan lead their own kurling sessions for the rest of the school.
Sainsbury’s School Games Swimming Gala (South Worcestershire Heat), where our team of year 5 and 6s competed against year 6 teams from seven Middle Schools, and won. They will now go on to compete at the Worcestershire Youth Games, representing South Worcestershire.

Sainsbury’s Games South Worcestershire Yr 5 and 6 Cross Country Running competition at Prince Henry’s where our Year 5 team came first in the Boys’ race and our girls came second and third, and we came second in the Year 6 Boys’ race. Those children will all now go through to represent South Worcestershire at the Youth Games:
