PE at St Gerard's

We believe that Physical Education, experienced in a safe and cooperative environment, is vital and unique in its contribution to a pupils’ physical and emotional development, as well as their health and well being.


''Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity'' - John F. Kennedy.


The physical education curriculum aims to provide for pupils’ increasing self confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. A balance of individual, team, co-operative and competitive activities aims to cater for individual pupil’s needs and abilities. Pupils will develop a sense of fair play, respect and sportsmanship through our high quality teaching and learning of physical development in all key stages.


We ensure that every child receives 2 hours of high-quality PE and sport, within the curriculum, as well as extra-curricular sports activities which are on offer to Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils.
