Here at St. Joseph’s our PE curriculum is balanced, varied and embedded in ensuring children develop fundamental motor skills. This process begins in the Early Years where children are introduced to key skills such as; running, jumping, co-ordination, balance, agility, throwing and catching. As the children progress throughout the school these core skills are then built upon and transferable skills are developed through traditional sports. These include dance, games, gymnastics, swimming, and athletics (see our long-term plan, KS1 skills progression and KS2 Skills progression for more info).  Our children also take park in outdoor adventure activities such as Bellboating, Orienteering and our residential trips to the Pioneer Centre.

Our P.E. curriculum aims to introduce a variety of fun and engaging activities which inspire the children to lead active lifestyles beyond school. It also encourages our Key Stage 2 pupils to develop valuable lifelong coaching and leadership skills. PE promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills, and it promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus, we enable the children to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives.

Extra-Curricular PE Activities

Sporting links with Blessed Edward Oldcorne


P.E. at St. Joseph’s enables pupils to develop the skills necessary for competitive sport and ensures pupils are ‘high school ready’ by the end of Year 6. We aim to broaden the children’s opportunities in competitive sports through our links with Blessed Edward Oldcorne. At St Joseph’s we work alongside the School Sports Co-ordinator from Blessed Edwards who works with our Sports Crew to lead and promote different sporting activities.  Throughout the year all classes have the opportunity to take part in sporting festivals or in competitions organised by Blessed Edwards.  These include:  Gymnastics, Rounders, Athletics, Multi-skills, Kwik Cricket, Football, Netball, Outdoor Adventurous Activities and Tag Rugby.
