Sports at St John’s
Sport is a fundamental part of our school life at St John’s; each pupil participates in regularly games, gymnastics and swimming lessons in Year 4 along with the opportunity to attend extracurricular clubs.
PE specialists from All for Sport deliver high quality dance and gymnastics lessons in line with the national curriculum which develop each pupil’s physical, thinking and social skills. Pupils will also participate in games lessons, which will be led by the class teacher and support by the PE specialists.
Pupils are given the opportunity to attend a wide range of extracurricular activities that extends their learning. There are a range of clubs run by school staff and by external providers. More information can be found on the parent’s page.
Competition is important at St John’s and many of our clubs which run will feed into a Barnet Partnership School Sport competition. Pupils who attend these clubs will have to attend an initial trial to become members of the squad, those whom have been selected will then attend squad training with a view to be selected for competitions and school matches.
We also have Sports Leaders and a Sports Council who assist with the improvement and development of school sport.
