Sport is highly valued at St Joseph's. The school believes that physical education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, is a unique and vital contributor to a pupil's physical development and well-being.
A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide for pupils' increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies within a variety of movement situations.
Pupils are encouraged to appreciate the importance of a healthy and fit body and mind, and to begin to understand those factors that affect health and fitness. This is in line with the school's policies for EPR, Science and Physical Activity.
