Curriculum Intent

Physical Education develops pupils’ physical competence and confidence, and their ability to use these to perform in a range of activities.

It promotes physical skilfulness, physical development and knowledge of the body in action. Physical education provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive and to face up to different challenges as individuals and in groups and teams. It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.

Physical education is an integral part of one of the general aims of our school - the education of the whole child. It encompasses activities in gymnastics, dance and games. Through experience, the children gain knowledge, understanding and skills which enable them to develop positive attitudes, appreciate their strengths and weaknesses, and be concerned with their own and others’ safety.

At St. John’s we offer a wide range of sporting activities for all our pupils, during the lunchtime break and after school. These include gymnastics, football, netball, tag rugby, table tennis, tennis, drama, cricket and dance. We are fortunate to have top coaches; many linked to Bath University, Bath Cricket Club and Bath Rugby Club come into school to coach the children.

St John’s was awarded the Active Mark Gold for Sport by the Sports Council and the School Games Platinum award for excellence in School sport, PE and physical activity.
