At St John’s Highbury Vale, we provide a broad and varied PE curriculum relating to games, gymnastics, dance, swimming, athletics, outdoor and adventurous activities.
Alongside their weekly indoor PE session, Elm sports (an external sports provider), delivers lessons to all our children, where they focus on outdoor PE skills such as; athletics, rounders and cricket.
Our children have the opportunity to compete and co-operate both within lessons and many competitions across the borough of Islington. We are regular competitors in boys and girls cricket, tennis and football competitions.
In Key Stage 2, children experience a progressive cycling curriculum, in addition to the core provision, to equip them with the skills to ride safely. Swimming lessons are taken by all pupils in Year 3 and 4 as part of Key Stage 2 statutory provision.
We provide a range of sporting after school clubs including gymnastics, football and fencing. We also have good links with Arsenal hub.
