Physical Education Long Term Plan

Intent, Implementation & Impact

 

Swimming at St Mary & St John

The school has use of the nearby Oxford University Rosenblatt Pool for swimming sessions.

This is a lovely pool, large (25 m x 17 m) and well equipped, with good changing areas. It is part of the Oxford University Sports Complex on Iffley Road, and the children walk to and from the sessions, in supervised groups, along Meadow Lane and Jackdaw Lane.

On swimming days children need to bring to school a swimsuit, a towel and a swimming cap, in a waterproof bag. Caps can be bought at the school office at Meadow Lane.

 

Sports & Outdoor Learning at St Mary & St John

 

The children are given the opportunity to take part in sports festivals and sports competitions. We have a boys and girls football team who train weekly and play regularly.

Every year our Year 6 children go on a fun filled residential trip to Woodlands Centre in Wales. When the children stay at the centre they have a week of outdoor activities including: canoeing, climbing, abseiling, mountain walking, orienteering and caving. This week is often one of the highlights of the children’s year.
