At St Joseph’s we believe that physical education is of paramount importance. Supporting children and their families in learning how to be fit and healthy in the future is one of our main priorities for the children in our school. Not only that, but sportsmanship, following rules and learning how to support and cooperate with each other are valuable life skills. These can be learnt and applied through P.E. lessons.
With the new government sports funding, we are looking at ensuring sustainability for the future. This means we are training all of our teachers to deliver ‘high quality’ P.E. lessons. A range of after school sporting activities are being initiated and will be in place from January 2014. Year 4 cohort are also being trained as play leaders with the aim of supporting Key Stage 1 to have more structured play at lunch times.
