St Nicholas of Tolentine Catholic Primary School

Where charity and love are, God is there


PE at St Nicholas


At St Nicholas school, we believe that physical education for all children is required to nurture well-balanced individuals. As physical activity greatly contributes to improved health, increased levels of concentration, a reduction of stress levels and promotes correct physical growth and development, it is a key area of the curriculum.


To ensure all children at St Nicholas school receive the benefits that this subject offers, we teach from REAL PE and deliver high quality lessons which are differentiated to meet the needs of the children. The children receive two lessons a week and take part in dance, gymnastics and games. KS2 children have swimming lessons. Throughout the year, the children have the opportunity to be taught by subject specialists through WezSports.


Children are encouraged to participate in local sports competitions to develop a competitive spirit and co-operation.


Our aim is that as children progress through the school that will learn about the benefits of physical activity and develop life-long, positive habits.
