About Us


P.E at St Nicholas Priory Primary School


P.E. and school sport are an important part of life at St. Nicholas Priory C.E.V.A. Primary School. We believe that P.E. and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and through participation our children build and learn more about respect, responsibility, collaboration, aspiration & achievement for themselves and others.

Our goal is that all pupils, on leaving St Nicholas Priory, will be physically literate and have the knowledge, life skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle, enjoyment and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


We aim to promote the development of P.E. and sport in our school, incorporating the Primary P.E. and Sport Premium funding, in the following ways:-

  • Sports coaches to work with our children allowing them to experience a broad range of games, and encourage them to engage with physical activity 
  • Access a variety of non-traditional sports, for example rock-climbing, boxing, paddle boarding
  • Professional coaches to work alongside teachers and improve teaching skills
  • Access off-site sporting events, such as inter-school competitions
  • Challenge the most-able children
  • Provide quality sporting equipment to engage all children with physical activities
  • Incorporate physical education and sport throughout the curriculum


Chief Medical Officer for England states that all children. should be active for 60 minutes per day.
