School Sports Page

Sport is important to us at St. John’s and with our encouragement sport is important to the children too. We offer a full programme of physical education within the school day and this is extended further through our participation in sports events across the local authority; competitive and non-competitive.

We also offer a wonderful sport enrichment programme providing every child from Reception to Year 6 with the opportunity to try their hand at a sport which is not a mainstream primary school sport (see our SPORTS ENRICHMENT page on this website…..the drop-down tab is on the curriculum page).

Detailed information about our PE offer can be found by reading the PE Guidelines. All subject guidelines are published on the homepage of the curriculum tab. The key resource we use for teaching PE is ‘Complete PE.’ This resource is adapted by the school and further refined to reflect our sporting priorities.

Please read on to discover more about PE at St. John’s during the current academic year (September 2022- July 2023)
