Physical Education

At St. John's, we have a gym and studio set up with gym equipment for indoor sport, a large playing field and two playgrounds to offer a range of sport during the curriculum and well-attended after-school sports clubs.

We are fortunate to be regularly visited by professional coaches, including Bath Rugby Foundation and Somerset Cricket Board, who pass on their knowledge and expertise to our pupils.

Real PE

As a school we use Real PE as a scheme to teach the purpose and aims of the national curriculum.  Please use the links below to see year group specific content:

School Games Mark



The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.  We are very proud to announce that this year St John’s has achieved the Gold School Games Mark for our commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport this year!



Swimming Statement:

2018/19 95% of the year group achieved the swimming standard set in the National Curriculum.

2019/20 We finish last academic year with 80% of the Year 6’s being able to swim 25M and self rescue. This is less than last year due to COVID 19 and not being able to reassess the children who hadn’t secured the required level.
