Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity

Our School Mission Statement

Our pupils belong to a caring, sharing community which promotes learning through respect and love for all through our shared Catholic faith. We strive to follow Christ’s example to always do our best. 

Physical activity not only improves physical health, mental wellbeing and concentration, but also promotes correct growth and development in children. Exercise has a positive influence on academic achievement, emotional stability and social interactions. Physical Education provides a wealth of opportunities for children to develop spiritual, moral, social, cultural (SMSC) and British Values; it develops the whole person.

Each week, in Merit Assembly, children are invited to bring in sports awards they have achieved in clubs outside of school, and one child or team is chosen to be presented with the Sports Award!
 
There are plenty of ways you can help your child to stay active at home: 
  • Encourage them to compete in KSSP Personal Challenges or Super 60 Squad Competitions 
  • Sign them up for a virtual after-school club
  • Join in with some well-known activities, such as Joe Wicks workouts, Cosmic Kids Yoga or Just Dance.
