We are dedicated to ensuring that all children at our school have plenty of opportunities to participate in a range of sporting events and activities. This commitment is demonstrated by the Bronze School Games Mark that we have been awarded (September 2016).
We offer a variety of sport at St Joseph's. In PE lessons pupils take part in athletics, gymnastics, dance, competitive games and swimming lessons (which take place at St Nicolas Park in Warwick). In addition to the weekly PE lessons that pupils participate in, each class take part in regular 'Fit for learning' sessions that revive the brain and get everybody ready to learn.
We also encourage pupils to get moving during their play times and provide 'Huffy Puffy' equipment each play time for pupils to use and enjoy. We are very lucky to also have 'Play Quest' climbing equipment on our site which the pupils are always eager to use!
Additionally, Year 6 pupils are Playleaders at lunch times. They plan, set up and lead purposeful play for children of all ages. Our Playleaders are very popular with the other pupils who love joining in with different games each lunchtime. Our Year 6's have a great time leading play and we always have lots of volunteers.
We also offer a number of after school sports clubs. We run football, netball and running clubs, and in the summer term, we offer a wide variety of after school sports activities for every child in school. The pupils love taking part in matches and tournaments representing the school and we love hearing their sports reports in our whole school assemblies, celebrating their success.
