Educating in Faith, Hope and Love


At St Joseph's, we promote an active learning environment where we challenge, motivate and inspire one another in our inclusive community. Each class has two lessons of PE a week where they are taught a broad range of activities and an ethos to encourage positive mental health and wellbeing through our well-rounded PE curriculum.

School Games Year 5 and 6 Girls Touch Rugby Festival 2023

A few Year 5 and 6 girls went to take part in a fun, Touch Rugby festival at Hove Rugby Club. This was a mix of skills practice sessions, followed by fun Touch Rugby Union games. A student even got a brilliant certificate for Determination! All of these sessions were led by Rugby Leaders from Cardinal Newman and everyone had a lovely, active time. 



 We have brought in a new PE curriculum this year called 'PE Planning'. This new curriculum supports all teachers to create and deliver high quality primary school PE lessons that are always engaging, active and fun! 

This curriculum makes sure that children are always taught to a high standard following the National Curriculum guidelines. That is why all our lessons have the option of fully detailed plans for teachers or quick reference plans for the experienced Coach. Every Unit of Work is accompanied with Medium Term Planning and to help roadmap our way through the PE Curriculum. Assessments are created by our PE subject lead for teachers to complete after each module is taught to gain a whole-school overview of PE.
