Physical Education

Physical Education is an essential part of our Curriculum at St Johns. We provide our pupils with the very best education in all aspects of learning and this is also the case within our pupils' PE lessons. We aim to provide ALL children with wonderful opportunities to engage in a variety of physical activities. Our children look forward to their PE lessons each week and enjoy developing themselves physically and socially. As well as in class PE lessons, children have the opportunities for a wide range of enrichment after-school sports clubs, such as archery, football, netball, boccia, curling and dance. We have a school football team which takes part in the Gedling Football League and the children from Year 1 - 6 take part in a variety of sports competitions and festivals, with many successes. Many of our children participate in sports outside of school and their commitment and achievements are valued and celebrated within our 'Celebration Assemblies'. At the end of the academic year, we hold a 'Sports Awards Evening', where children are nominated, voted and awarded with a selection of sports awards; these are presented by a 'Sports Personality' and is celebrated along with parents and carers.
