Physical Education at St Francis


Physical  education  develops  pupil's  physical  competence,  competition and confidence, and their  ability to use these to perform in a range  of activities. It promotes physical development and a knowledge of the body in action.  Physical education  provides  opportunities  for  pupils  to  be  creative, competitive  and  to face up to different challenges as individuals and groups and teams. 


It promotes positive attitudes towards active and healthy lifestyles.  Pupils learn how to think in different  ways  to  suit  a  wide  variety  of  creative,  competitive  and  challenging activities.  They  learn  how  to  plan,  perform  and  evaluate  actions,  ideas  and performances  to  improve  their  quality  and  effectiveness. Through  this  process pupils discover their aptitudes, abilities and preferences, and make choices about how  to  get  involved  in  lifelong  physical activity.


All  children  are  expected  to participate in PE at St Francis and will only be excused if requested, in writing, by Parents/Guardians, or if they have become ill.

Sport & Physical Activity at St Francis

At St Francis, children are given the opportunity to participate in two hours of PE each week, supplemented, if they wish, by After-School clubs and robust links with other local Sporting Providers.


We aim to offer an enjoyable, varied and challenging PE Curriculum at St Francis, which meets the stated aims of the new National Curriculum for PE.
