Inspired by the life of St. Joseph,
we live, loveĀ and learn together.


The PE Curriculum Intention:

Pupils learn to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities, build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect


Pupils should learn about:

Developing competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities; being physically active for sustained periods of time; engaging in competitive sports and activities and how to lead healthy, active lives.


  • At St. Joseph’s we aim to offer a curriculum that helps a child to develop physically and mentally and which promotes a positive attitude towards a healthy and active lifestyle. Due to our location we place a particular emphasis on swimming and each year group participates in swimming sessions (including lessons in the sea in summer).
  • We provide lessons in which children are active, involved and engaged. We encourage the children to collaborate in groups and teams but also to enjoy the challenge of competition.
  • We offer after school sports clubs and partake in a range of inter school competitions.
  • We use the expertise of a dance specialist within the staff to support the teaching of high quality dance across the school
  • Beyond the physical benefits of P.E., we recognise its importance in developing confidence, creativity and resilience.
  • We teach the children about how mental health and well-being can be improved with physical exercise
