PE was mentioned as outstanding by Ofsted in our recent inspection. At St James’s every child is given the opportunity to participate in high quality PE and to achieve their full potential. We provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident and give them the tools to help them lead a healthy active lifestyle. We give opportunities to compete in all sports, to be competitive and take part in physically-demanding activities. We aspire to continue the legacy of the Olympic and Paralympics games and encourage every child to uphold the values in their everyday lives.
