PE and Sport is an extremely important part of our school life. One of our aims is for every child to have represented St Francis in a competitive sporting event by the time they leave us for High School. We value the skills and attitudes that sport brings and enjoy seeing children flourish and developing confidence. We take part in many competitions, both local and national, during the year and are very successful in these.
We have competed virtually in: cross country, football, basketball and multi skills. For these competitions the children were given a number of individual challenges in which they had to practice at break times and then be tested on them by a teacher. Their scores were recorded and the top 3 scores for each age group were sent to the Manchester P.E School Games Organisers.

Our children experience an extremely wide range of sports - we take every opportunity offered!
PE and Sport in Action
We also offer Bike Right cycling lessons to our Year 5 children - during these sessions the children are taken out onto the roads around school and they learn how to cycle safely. The Bike Right team also visit the younger children to introduce them cycling with balance bikes.
Our Year 4 children go swimming every week along with a group of ten Year 3 children who have not been swimming before. We have gradually moved swimming down the school from Year 6 and are aiming for Year 2 to be the main swimming class in the next few years.
Our staff are just as enthusiastic about sport as the children. Here they are following an impromptu staff vs children rounders match after school!
