Physical Education

Physical Education forms a fundamental part of our curriculum at St Barnabas and St Paul’s both during lesson time and extra-curricular activities.


PE is taught from Reception right through to year 6 twice a week, teaching two different units per half term. We offer the children opportunities to experience dance, gymnastics, and a variety of games, athletics, outdoor and adventure and swimming. We are very fortunate that the children in key stage 2 get the chance to learn how to swim and how to stay safe in and around water. They visit Darwen Leisure Centre and have qualified swimming instructors guiding them in swimming and water safety. Not only is this a fantastic opportunity for the children but they love going!


Our school offers a range of before and after school clubs, run by staff and professional coaches that allow the children to experience sports for both fun and for competition. Clubs range from netball and football to dance and dodgeball.
