Once again, we completed the Sports Mark* application- a detailed process which analyses our sporting provision here at St Saviour's Catholic Primary and Nursery School. This mark ranks us nationally against other schools and considers the amount of opportunity's we provide the children with both during curriculum time and through extra-curricular activities. The results are in and…
At St Saviour's physical education is about providing a high quality curriculum which inspires all pupils to succeed whether that is competitively or in other physically-demanding activities.
We aim to provide opportunities for all pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness.
We also aim to provide children with opportunities to compete in team sports and other activities helping to build character and embed values such as fairness and respect.
For more information on what is being taught in each year group, please see our topic webs found in the 'Termly Synopsis of Work'.
Did you know that it’s recommended that all children get at least 60 active minutes a day? That’s 30 minutes in school and 30 minutes at home! Help to achieve your 60 minutes by getting involved in some of our sporting activities.
During school time we all get involved in:
All daily Arithmetic sessions now begin with a physical activity within the classroom e.g. star jumps – raising the heart-rate, improving oxygen flow and fitness.
Each day when the children line up after morning break and lunchtime the music will go on and everyone – staff included - will dance! This will again raise the heart-rate, get the oxygen flowing and wake up the brain! Ask the children about their dance moves!
Mile A Day Challenge with Waffle
Children are now also offered the chance to complete the 'mile a day' challenge at lunch times with our friendly school puppy- Waffle. Children are encouraged to walk, run or jog for a mile around the school field and try to improve their time or walk / run further each week. Try to beat your personal best!

Our after school clubs will be run by Vara Sports- they're a great way to keep active, develop physically and have fun!
