At St Joseph’s we recognise the importance of PE and the role it has to play in promoting a long-term healthy lifestyle. Healthier children become healthier adults and through careful planning, we ensure that high quality teaching and learning instils in children the value of looking after their bodies. Our PE curriculum has been designed around the requirements of the National Curriculum to provide all children with high quality PE and sporting provision. It is our vision that every child fulfils his or her sporting potential and is given the opportunity to take part in a broad range of sporting activities.

We offer a broad range of sporting opportunities through our membership with Stockport SHAPES alliance and as a member of the Reddish cluster of schools. These partnerships allow children to experience competitive sporting events, in addition to learning vital life skills such as teamwork, determination and resilience.

The school PE kit represents St Joseph's during PE lessons and competitions. Please make sure your children wear this and are not wearing a different one. It is a plain T-shirt and black shorts, the old school kit (Blue shorts, and yellow T-shirt) is acceptable if you have it from previous years. For cold weather it is acceptable to wear plain black leggings or plain blue jumpers. 
These lovely boys also show that jewerry cannot be worn at any point, as well as watches or any item that might be dangerous during the practice of Physical Education and Physical Activity.
