Physical Education at St Thomas's CEP School



At St Thomas's, we aim to educate both adults and children to develop a greater understanding of the benefits of physical activity and healthy living. Children need to practise skills on a daily basis to show commitment to keeping their bodies healthy.  This will promote long term healthy, active lifestyle choices. It is our responsibility to empower the children to build knowledge, improve skills and deepen social wellbeing within a fruitful partnership between home, school and the community.


Physical Education develops the children's knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. These include multi-skills and invasion games, net and ball games, dance, gymnastics, athletics, outdoor activities and swimming.    


In every P.E lesson our aim is to nurture confident, resilient children who strive to achieve their potential through a wealth of competitive experiences. We encourage a positive attitude towards winning and an accepting approach towards losing within a wide range of sports. This way everyone can celebrate varying sports, skills and success in themselves and others in school. 


All our P.E lessons use a variety of teaching and learning styles to support and develop the children's knowledge, skills and understanding. The P.E lessons are inclusive for all our children and cater for all individuals needs and strengths. The teachers work alongside professional elite sports coaches to provide the children with the highest of quality teaching and learning within a wide variety of different physical activities and competitive games.  

Abu-Bakr with his World Champions Medals

Our World Champion


Abu-Bakr represented Great Britain at the Martial Arts World Championships. He did us very proud by coming back with, not only bronze and silver medals for two events. But a gold medal and the title of World Champion for his third event.

The school helped raise him over £250 pounds to go towards kit and badge costs, we are very proud of his achievements and are honoured to have a World Champion in our school family.


Well Done Abu-Bakr smiley
