St John’s offers a rich range of sporting opportunities from weekly curriculum classes to fun taster sessions and even regional competition. We offer PE in a safe and supportive environment, and encourage all staff as well as pupils to take part, find out what interests them and build up their skills. We believe that PE provides opportunities for pupils to be creative, competitive, learn teamwork and face up to challenges.
Children at St John’s get to try out a wide range of sport, dance and other physical activity. They can do this in class time and at clubs after school.
South Dartmoor School Sport Partnership
We work closely with the South Dartmoor School Sport Partnership (SSP). This means we can offer much more than if we stood alone as a primary school. This partnership also gives us chance to stretch pupils with a particular gift, by taking part in regional competitions.
“The sport was really fun and I got into a lot of competitions because of St John’s. It gave me confidence so now I’m at High School I still do sport after school as well as in PE.”
