Physical Education and Sport
At St John’s Primary School we provide children with high quality PE lessons as well as a range of opportunities to participate in competitive school sports and clubs. Through high quality teaching, we aim to develop in children the enthusiasm and determination to improve in all areas of PE. Throughout the year groups children are given the opportunity to engage in competitive sports tournaments with other schools and to attend dance or gymnastics festivals where they are required to perform. These experiences develop teamwork, perseverance and resilience – skills that are transferable to other areas of their learning. Through our PE, Science and PHSE curriculum, we also increase pupils’ awareness of activities that are harmful to their health such as the dangers of obesity and smoking.
We employ a sports coach from Full Circle Sports http://www.fullcirclesports.co.uk/index.html
