Sporting activities are a very important part of school life at St Joseph's.  

In September 2014, we were pleased to have achieved the Silver Sainsbury's School Games Kitemark for our commitment to and development of, PE, school sports clubs and competitions during 2013/14.  This award recognises the hardwork that our staff have undertaken to ensure all pupils have access to a wide breadth of sports opportunities within the school.  This builds on the Bronze award we received in 2012/13.

Primary school sports and PE are also very important to the government, who are providing primary schools with additional Sports Premium funding from 2013 to 2020, to improve the provision of physical education and sport.

At St Joseph's we have identified several areas which we aim to improve and enhance through the Sports Premium funding.  This in turn will help to raise pupil participation and achievement for every pupil at St Joseph's in sport and physical activity.

Our aims are:
- to improve the quality of teaching of PE across the school with help and assitance from trained and qualified coaches
- to further develop the outdoor and adventurous activities within the PE curriculum
