The Importance Of Physical Education

At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we pride ourselves on the delivery of a high standard of Physical Education curriculum with two ‘specialist’ coaches (Miss Gunn and Mr Godfrey) supporting Class Teachers in the delivery of this curriculum.

Each class has two PE lessons per week (this includes swimming in Key Stage 2) and other initiatives are also introduced such as the ‘Golden Mile’, Year 1 and Year 2’s ‘On The Move’ project and Year 6’s Jump Rope fundraiser.

In addition to this, we also provide numerous After School Clubs including Netball, Football, Dance, Gymnastics, Multi-Skills, Tag Rugby, Cricket and Athletics. These clubs are run voluntarily by staff and on a paid basis by Premier Sports.

The Association For Physical Education has recently compiled an information leaflet for parents outlining the importance of physical activity for our children and this can be accessed via the website link below.

This leaflet outlines the relationship between children’s physical health and their emotional well-being and the relationship between these and academic achievement.

Please take a few minutes to look at this leaflet and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your continued support.
