St Joseph's Catholic Primary School Reddish


Welcome to St Joseph's P.E. page.

At St Joseph’s we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting a long-term healthy lifestyle. Healthier children become healthier adults and through careful planning, we ensure that high quality teaching and learning instils in children the value of looking after their bodies. Our PE curriculum has been designed around the requirements of the National Curriculum to provide all children with high quality PE and sporting provision. It is our vision that every child fulfils his or her sporting potential and is given the opportunity to take part in a broad range of sporting activities.

We offer a broad range of sporting opportunities through our membership with Stockport SHAPES alliance and as a member of the Reddish cluster of schools. These partnerships allow children to experience competitive sporting events, in addition to learning vital life skills such as teamwork, determination and resilience.

Congratulations to our Y6 netball team who won the Stockport qualifying tournament and are now through to the Manchester finals. They didn't lose a game and won one game 13-0!

A big congratulations to the Year 6 football team who won their league game against St Elisabeth's 7-0. A big well done to Lukas, Luca, Will, Reece and Harvey who scored our goals, and another well done to Jacob, who performed wonderfully on the right wing. Top of the league!

St Joseph's were privileged to meet Andy Turner, an Olympic athlete who has won European, World and Commonwealth medals. He spoke to the children about his journey and ran a coaching session afterwards. He let the children know the importance of hard work, dedication and never giving up - plus he let some children try on his medals! 

Year 6 have been developing tableaus in response to our history topic of The Battle of Britain. They were wonderful for a first attempt. Check back in a few weeks for the finished product!

An enormous congratulations to Billy in Year 6 who danced in the North West Oireachtas this week for the chance to represent England in the world Championships next year in Dublin.

He came first place and is now the under 10 champion of the North of England! 

Billy is immensely talented, focused and driven and works extremely hard with his dancing. He can train up to 10 hours each week on his technical work and fitness, resulting in him being an amazing athlete.

What an amazing achievement!
