At St James', we are committed to ensure that all pupils receive high quality, well planned PE, delivered by confident and well trained teachers. We aim to engage and inspire all pupils to learn new skills, be confident and enjoy sports at our school, prioritising mental health and well-being. Children leave the school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed.

For PE, we predominantly use the ‘Getset4PE’ scheme of work. We use this scheme because it has been written with careful consideration of the aims of the National Curriculum and ensures that children are given a wealth of opportunities to develop their physical movement skills by participating in progressive activities that are designed to inspire and engage children. Each lesson plan has specific information on key teaching points to support teachers with their subject knowledge and further guidance is given on how to deliver activities or specific skills.
