Physical Education

We believe that PE is for ALL.  Children quite naturally participate in physical exercise for its intrinsic pleasure and through a good PE curriculum, this enthusiasm can be built upon and it can contribute not only to a child's physical development, but also their emotional, social and intellectual development.  If a child has positive feelings about physical exercise, this will hopefully carry on into their adult life and may affect their overall self-confidence.  At St Joseph's, we recognise this and want children to reach their full potential and feel positive about PE.
