Physical Education

At St Joseph’s CE Junior School, we recognise the importance that physical education plays in the curriculum (and the impact it can have on children’s lives) and are committed to providing all children with opportunities to engage fully in PE. 

The aim of our PE curriculum is to develop children's basic physical competencies, build confidence in their ability and skills (across and a range of sports/activities) and build the foundations for a lifelong love of sport, physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. 

PE lessons encourage children to compete against themselves and others whilst being challenged to improve their social and emotional skills. The aim of the PE curriculum is to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities 

  • Are physically active for sustained periods of time 

  • Engage in competitive sports and activities 

  • Lead healthy, active lives 

  • Have the opportunity to cover each area of the PE curriculum (in their Key Stage) 

  • By the end of KS2, are ready for the next stage of their PE learning in KS3 

  • Learn values such as fairness and respect 

  • Build confidence and resilience 

  • Have access to PE lessons 

In order to achieve this, we aim to deliver high-quality teaching and learning opportunities within PE as well as exposed to competitive and non-competitive sports and by the time children leave in Year 6, we intend for every pupil to be technically proficient, an active participant in sporting opportunities, and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
