Our intent

At St. John Fisher, we believe in the value of sport. P.E. is an integral part of our curriculum, we have numerous school sports clubs such as Tennis, football, athletics, Gaelic football, Gymnastics, dance and netball. We have sports days for KS1 and KS2, and an interhouse sports between our houses in team sports.

It is important that children have some physical activity each day. All of our classes have two sessions of P.E. each week. We follow the Val Sabin programme for PE and cover all areas of the PE national curriculum. All KS2 children get the opportunity to swim each term too.

There is a wide selection of extracurricular clubs for children to take part in. Class teachers and outside agencies provide a variety of afterschool sessions targeting different age groups throughout the school. We are commited to entering external competitions whenever possible and love the opportunity to report back to the rest of SJF during our ‘Good Work Assembly’ every Friday.
