At St John the Baptist we believe that PE is a vital part in every child's physical and emotional development. As a school we aim to promote the enjoyment of physical activity and competitive sport. We also aim to encourage all pupils to realise the importance of an active healthy lifestyle.
Through our delivery of the Lancashire Scheme of Work and continued involvement with the Sports Partnership, the school aims to provide a broad and progressive range of high quality PE provision and increased participation in sporting competitions. We also aim to widen access to sport and physical activities through the development of links within our local community sports clubs.
In recognition of the importance of Physical Education and School Sport, the government have provided additional funding to all primary schools to enhance the provision of sustainable high quality PE.
