Welcome to the Physical Education Page!
At St Michael with St John, PE lessons cultivate a positive attitude towards fitness and inspire children to lead an active lifestyle. We follow the Lancashire scheme of work for teaching PE, which may be viewed in school on request.
We have a PE specialist teacher who supports class teachers in the delivery of PE and helps to develop our pupils’ involvement in competitive sports. During PE, children are taught skills through games, dance, athletics and gymnastics units. In Key Stage 2, orienteering is also taught. In addition to this, children in Year 3 and Year 5 have swimming lessons throughout the year.
During the year, children are given the opportunity to partake in a range of competitive sports involving football, rugby, netball, athletics and rounders tournaments. This allows our children to learn about the importance of respect and fairness as well as developing physical confidence.
We have excellent PE and sports facilities at St Michael with St John. Our Galaxy Centre includes a sports hall that we use for PE lessons. We also have our own large Astroturf pitch that is used for outdoor games and competitive sports events.
