St John's Church of England Primary

Expect the Best



At St Johns, we promote and ensure that all children are given the opportunity to take part in inclusive, engaging and adaptive physical activity and to develop their understanding of physical literacy - motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding the value of physical activity for lifelong participation. 


At St John's, every child is individual and the PE curriculum, from the Cambridgeshire Scheme of Work for Physical Education, is tailored to account for this and help develop their fundamental skills and well as expecting the best from all children.


We give the children the opportunity to participate in a variety of sporting contexts (games, dance, gymnastics and swimming) that build upon their skills that allows them to progress up to participating in traditional sport. Children also have the experience to compete whilst displaying the following values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-believe and teamwork.


At St John’s we also give a variety of extra curricular sporting clubs to promote healthier lifestyles and develop new and existing skills.
