P.E. is taught throughout the school with each class allocated two sessions per week. At Key Stage 1 there are three main aspects: Gymnastics, Dance, and Games. This is extended at Key Stage 2 to include Swimming, Athletics, and Outdoor and Adventurous Activities. Children are encouraged to understand and value the value of exercise to their general health and well-being.
St James’ has developed strong links with Rossendale Sports Partnership, which has enabled us to extend the variety of sports on offer throughout the year as part of our curricular and extra-curricular provision.
Children in Key Stage 2 also take part in swimming lessons.
We have a range of after-school clubs available throughout the year including, football, multi-sports, dodgeball and multi-skills clubs.
