We aim to inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities by providing opportunities for pupils to become physically confident and to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect and support their health and fitness.
All children receive at least one hour of P.E. delivered by a specialist P.E. teacher each week, which is supplemented by additional led exercise and activity sessions. Lessons follow a progressive curriculum, supported by PE Passport, which ensures that a range of sports and their associated skills are continually revisited, developed and improved on overtime.
All year groups are afforded opportunities to participate in a wide range of extra-curricular sporting activities, including football, netball, gymnastics, dance, cross country, cricket, athletics, judo, fencing and multi-sports. As part of Knowsley School Sport Partnership, the children from many year groups compete in numerous leagues, competitions and tournaments in a range of sports across the year.
The impact for all St Joseph’s pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, is that they:
- can confidently recall key knowledge about sports and skills they have taken part in
- can confidently apply knowledge and skills in competitive games, where applicable
- demonstrate the values of fairness, respect and co-operation
