St. James' CE Primary School

Physical Education

Our mission here at St James’ is to educate both mind and body. We think it is important to develop a strong understanding of health, promote a positive attitude towards physical activities, competition, personal-fitness and sporting skill.

We are lucky enough to have a full time PE teacher here at St James’ CofE . We are in receipt of Sports Premium funding (£9,940) which helps to fund the employment of this teacher full time. We also have our amazing Play Leaders that work with the children at Key Stage 2 and new this year at Key Stage 1.

We have well-equipped halls at both sites and have recently added extra play equipment to the playground in both schools. Key Stage 2 children have some amazing gym facilities inside and now out.

Nursery and Reception haven’t been left out either they have a new physical active play area in their outside area.

We have local swimming pools nearby that we are lucky enough to be able to use, the Salmon Centre for indoor clubs (football) and outside for rock climbing and the Oval Cricket Ground where the children compete in indoor cricket but to name a few.

Your child will be expected to bring a PE kit or remove their outerwear for indoor Physical Education. A school PE kit is available from our online school shop.
