Sport and PE
At St Michael with St John, we believe that School Sport and Physical Education is essential in developing healthy, motivated, confident and physically competent children. We believe it is important to support pupils to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through a range of physical activities whilst promoting a positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle.

During 2015/16, a selection of classes had the chance to work with a gymnast during their PE lessons. Children learnt how to: move across a space, jump, turn and safely use equipment around the hall. The children at the end of their lessons have all been able to preform their own gymnastic sequence in pairs or small groups.
During last years Sports Week children across the school participated in a range of different sports. There were cricket competitions in Key Stage 2 and the Key Stage 1 children showed off their hip hop skills in a dance session. Every class participated in sports day and a big thank you to all the parents that came to support their children. The Year 5 and 6 children took their time to plan some mini football sessions for Reception and Year 1 children. Finally we were privileged to have Chloe Lam-Moores, who participated in the London Olympics, come in and award children their certificates and to answer some pressing questions from the Year 5 and 6. Sports Week was enjoyed by all and thank you to everyone who made it a success. We are in the process of planning the next fun-filled sports week for the Summer Term.
