Physical Education forms an essential part of the curriculum at St John’s Primary School.

PE is important in learning how the body works, learn sporting skills and techniques and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

During PE children are taught a number of skills, games and sports. Practical sessions are delivered and led by our sports coach. At St John’s there are opportunities for children to partake in both team sports and individual events.

The PE curriculum includes the following activities:
  • Games – football, netball, basketball, tennis, badminton, rounders and cricket
  • Multi-skills
  • Gymnastics
  • Dance
  • Athletics
  • Swimming

There are numerous opportunities for children to participate in inter-school competitions and tournaments.

All PE clothing should be named and taken home frequently to be washed.

Our PE kit consists of:

  • a plain t-Shirt,
  • shorts
  • socks
  • trainers

Tracksuits are needed for when the weather is cold.
