Our PE curriculum strives to motivate every child to embrace an active lifestyle, demonstrating resilience and determination in acquiring new skills while building upon their existing knowledge. Our inclusive approach ensures that all students have the opportunity to excel in various physical activities, promoting success and confidence.


At St John Bosco RC Primary School, we teach essential skills such as teamwork and leadership; our PE curriculum provides opportunities to acquire these skills. We encourage children to participate in the competition, which helps them to develop their understanding of fair play.


Our holistic curriculum, which integrates PE, Science, and PSHE, educates students on the significance of physical activity and nutrition for a healthy lifestyle. We empower pupils to safely, imaginatively, and effectively use their bodies, equipment, and apparatus. By emphasizing the positive impact of physical activity and healthy eating on both physical and emotional well-being, we strive to nurture well-rounded individuals at St John Bosco RC Primary School.


In practice


Our PE curriculum is structured around the Get Set 4 PE and Cross-Curricular Orienteering schemes, aligning closely with the National Curriculum. These frameworks ensure a well-defined and progressive development of skills and knowledge within each year group and from year to year. Students engage in weekly PE lessons, participating in a diverse range of sporting activities.


Qualified swimming teachers conduct swimming lessons for Year 4 aiming to equip children with the ability to swim a minimum distance of 25 meters confidently and proficiently. Complementing our curriculum, after-school sports clubs provide additional opportunities for skill development. Additionally, during break time, students can partake in physical activities guided by staff, further enhancing our comprehensive sports provision.


We provide a range of sporting 'After School Clubs' including hockey, yoga, netball, football, dance, frisbee and rugby.


We encourage children to try different sports and activities by inviting specialists in to school such as Jamie Knight, a world renowned freestyle footballer, Scootfit with James Rodger and Rugby with Sales Sharks.

How parents can help:


Emphasize fun: Help your child find a sport that they relish. The more they enjoy the activity, the more likely they will want to partake. Get the entire family involved. It is a great way to spend time together.

Choose a developmentally appropriate activity: For example, a 7- or 8-year-old child is not ready for weight lifting or a 3-mile run, but football, bicycle riding, and swimming are great activities for kids this age.

Provide active toys: Young children especially need easy access to balls, jump ropes, and other active toys.

Be a role model: Children who regularly see their parents enjoying sports and physical activity are likely to do so themselves.

Play with your children: Help them learn a new game, go for a walk, hike or bike ride. Just have fun together.

Set limits: Limit screen time, including time spent on TV, videos and computers. Use the free time for more physical activities.
