At Fojanga Academy, we promote and ensure that all children are given the opportunity to take part in inclusive, engaging and adaptive physical activity and to develop their understanding of physical literacy - motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding the value of physical activity for lifelong participation.
At Fojanga Academy, every child is an individual and the PE curriculum, from the Cambridge Shire Scheme of Work for Physical Education, is tailored to account for this and help develop their fundamental skills and well as expecting the best from all children.
We give the children the opportunity to participate in a variety of sporting contexts (games, dance, gymnastics and swimming) that build upon their skills that allows them to progress up to participating in traditional sport. Children also have the experience to compete whilst displaying the following values: determination, honesty, passion, respect, self-belief and teamwork.
At St John’s we also give a variety of extracurricular sporting clubs to promote healthier lifestyles and develop new and existing skills.

PE Intent Statement

    • Aim to provide a PE curriculum that all pupils from Reception to Year 6 not only enjoy but also allows them to experience a range of activities and skills that help to develop their health, fitness and well-being.
    • Give pupils the opportunity to be physically active for sustained periods of time.
    • Offer a high-quality PE curriculum that inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in physically-demanding activities, including competitive sports.
    • Create opportunities for pupils to become physically confident, build character, embed values such as fairness and respect and develop essential skills like leadership and teamwork.

Non – Participation

Parents are responsible for ensuring that their children attend all active lessons in the school day, as PE is a statutory part of the National Curriculum. Parents do not have the right to withdraw their children from lessons, except in rare and exceptional circumstances, which must be discussed and approved by the Principal and PE teacher. Medical issues must be signed off by a doctor or medical professional.
