Physical Education

At St Francis we believe that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils’ increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations. Progressive learning objectives, combined with sympathetic and varied teaching approaches, endeavour to provide stimulating, enjoyable, satisfying and appropriately challenging learning experiences for all pupils.

St Francis Catholic Primary School provides all pupils with at least 2 hours of high quality PE & school sport, through the curriculum, extra-curricular opportunities and lunchtime activities. These are detailed in the PE Curriculum Overview, which shows PE programme for each year group, each term.

In St Francis we teach Real PE, a programme that gives all children the physical literacy, emotional and thinking skills to achieve in PE, sport and life.

We are members of The London PE & School Sport Network. Our partnership’s mission is to inspire a generation to choose physical education and sport for life. The London PE & School Sport Network tries to achieve this through developing, delivering and leading high quality projects across the Borough, that we are invited to participate in.
