Physical Education (PE)

Physical Education Clipart Images

At St. John’s C.E. Primary School we provide a caring environment in which children are allowed to discover personal qualities and values such as perseverance, tolerance,  determination, honesty, enthusiasm and passion, respect, team work and self-belief through the physical medium.  Many of which are the School Games Values and transfer across many of the different areas of the curriculum. We aim to provide all pupils with a sense of achievement as well as enjoyment and fun through an appropriately balanced and developmental range of physical activities.

Physical Education is an integral and essential part of the curriculum from which the children can derive a great deal of pleasure. It is exclusively concerned with the physical child, providing the main sources of exercise, essential for the physical growth and development of the child. Exercise is also essential requirement for health and fitness and has also a positive effect on well-being and academic achievement. 

Our PE curriculum is designed to progressively develop the children’s physical literacy skills and inspire all the children to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physical activities as well supporting their health and fitness.
