Ripley St. John’s CofE
Primary School & Nursery
At St Johns we provide a wide range of sporting activities in PE and through extra curricular activities. Using the school funding we are able to access the coaching that the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership (AVSSP) provides which will allow us to deliver high quality PE lessons as well as accessing a more diverse range of sports.
In PE and extra curricular activities students will be taught a wide range of sports such as:
Extra curricular Clubs
Lunch (12:15 – 12:45)
After School (3:15 – 4:15)
Sports Leaders games
Junior Sports Leaders
Sports Leaders is an extra curricular activity which takes place at lunch time which enables students to learn new games and different activities that can be played on the playground. Sports leadership gives children the opportunity to learn leadership skills and manage different activities at lunch time, as well as giving children more confidence and understanding of PE and sport. As part of their role, the leaders also volunteer as mini coaches at the After school sports clubs.
This year our Sports Leaders have attended a number of Leaders conferences that have developed their knowledge of fitness and healthy lifestyle, team building and leadership. They share their skills and knowledge with the whole school during sports week.
